Cherry Mojito

Hi guys!

Happy Monday!

Today I want to introduce you to the newest addition of my “mojito collection”!

By now, you most likely already know I love mojitos! And cherries are in season, which is great. And more important – I was able to find some dark red ripe cherries (I’ve been tired from buying cherries, that are not ripe). So I decided to make cherry mojitos.

Cherry Lime Mojitos

This is a recipe, I would typically post on a Friday. Because it is a holiday week, I decided to post it today, so you guys can make it for 4th of July.

Cherry and lime is one of my favorite combinations. I also grow mint in my garden, so making this mojitos was so simple! I also used simple syrup, which is my little secret for the perfect mojito. This drink could easily be made in a pitcher and served at a party.
