It’s my husband’s birthday and I decided to make some mojitos. I love mojitos, mojitos are now my favorite cocktail drink. They were really refreshing and minty and really hit the spot. :)

Mojitos are traditionally from Cuba and are not really very strong. They have simple ingredients like rum, sugar, lime juice, mint and club soda. Now there are several versions of mojitos and I remember once I was at a restaurant and I had ordered a strawberry mojito, you might think that’s a bit weird, but let me tell you it was amazing. Even though it was strawberry, it was still very minty. Anyway the version I chose to make today, is more of the traditional mojito, with a small twist, I blended the mint with the sugar, ice cubes and lime juice, for a more minty flavor. It was truly delicious and super minty.

    Never had a mohita.
    I’ve only got an unopened 30 year old bottle of bacardi rum. Have your eyes popped out of your head or something? It was the time of the rum and cokes and my dad brought/bought me a bottle but I’d stopped drinking.
    Can limes be frozen as they are dear Jo?
    :-)

      LOL, Judy you make me laugh! Yes limes can be frozen, you can cut them in quarters and place them in a ziploc bag and freeze them.

      You can, but it won’t taste the same, we forgot to add the sugar once and it just mostly tasted like lime and mint. You can definitely cut down on the sugar, it just needs a bit of sweetness.
