Cherry Lime Mojito
Cherry Lime Mojito – very simple to make, sweet and refreshing.
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.
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.
This cherry lime mojito is my new favorite summer cocktail.
CHERRY LIME MOJITO
For The Simple Syrup:
- (If you'd like to make your own simple syrup, this recipe makes around 1¾ cups)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
For The Cherry Lime Mojito:
- 6 cherries — , stems removed, pitted
- juice from 1 lime
- 12 mint leaves
- 2 oz white rum
- 2 oz simple syrup
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 1/2 cup club soda
- fresh cherry
- lime wedges
- mint leaves
For The Simple Syrup:
Prepare simple syrup, by combining 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water and bringing it to a boil. Stir to let sugar dissolve and remove from heat. Let syrup cool.
For The Cherry Mojito:
In a sturdy glass, combine cherries, mint leaves, rum and simple syrup. Muddle to extract juices from mint leaves and cherries. Add ice and then top with soda water.
Garnish with lime wedges, mint leaves and fresh cherry. Serve immediately.
