The Ultimate Mojito… The Sequel – The Cherry Mojito! It’s also slushy and yummy!
So…You’ve probably seen my ultimate mojito and hopefully even tried it. It was good, it was very good, it was beyond my highest expectations! It it truly my favorite cocktail drink. I never thought of myself as a bartender, an expert at making cocktails, as a matter of fact if anything, my sister has always been the expert. I’m merely the one that enjoys the cocktails. But in an act of desperation to impress my husband with a great drink for his birthday, the mojito came to life. And impress I did, to see the pleasure in his eyes as he was drinking till the very last drop, I was delighted.
But all that is in the past, we must move on, we must evolve.
So The Cherry Mojito was born!
It comes loaded with 2 cups of cherries, loads of rum, lime zest and juice, and let’s not forget the star of the ultimate mojito, the mint. Without mint, it would not be a mojito after all.
The Cherry Mojito, who’d have thunk it?
It is indeed a wonder of the world!
And now I present to you The Cherry Mojito!
- 2 cups of cherries pitted
- 8 sprigs of mint leaves only
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- zest from one lime
- 4 cups of ice
- 1 cup rum
- 2 cups club soda
In a blender add the cherries, mint leaves, lime zest, lime juice, sugar and 2 cups of the ice. Blend well until it's all slushy.
To the blender, add the remaining ice, rum and club soda. Stir well and serve.
You might be saying to yourself by now, Jo, there really is not much difference between the Cherry Mojito and The Ultimate Mojito and I say to you, you’re wrong. There are CHERRIES in it!
