Mojitos

June 27, 2012

We had a few friends over for dinner on Saturday and I decided to make Mojitos because my garden runneth over with mint!  And it’s such a summery drink.

But I did not like the idea of muddling 8 drinks and possibly muddling 8 more drinks:  too much work!

So I looked up big batch, make ahead recipes.

This was very successful and I received rave reviews from all my guests!

Mojitos

Just a few hints about the recipe:

8 limes squeezed is equal to 1 cup of lime juice (the most work you have to do in this recipe)

I used about 1-1/2 very heavy sprigs of mint to make 1-1/4 cups of lightly packed mint leaves.

I pinched off just the tip of the mint stalk for garnish ahead of time and put them in a shallow bowl with cold water so I had them all ready when I was serving the drinks.

I did not put ice into the pitcher with the rum, mint syrup and lime juice.  I made sure each separate ingredient was cold and added a lot of ice to each glass.

I also made 2 batches which gave everyone about 2 servings each.

Have fun and enjoy!!
