Summer is upon us, and while I can't speak for my California friends, I can tell you that it is hotter than sin here in Virginia. While I loathe the heat and humidity with almost every fiber of my soul, it is good for one thing: Sitting outside in the mid to late evening, chatting with friends, watching the sunset, and sipping on my favorite adult beverage, the Mojito.
While not a necessarily complicated drink to make, our friends at Bacardi have made it considerably easier by producing one of their mixers as a Mojito. Tastes as good as the original, and you don't have to worry about what the hell a "Simple Syrup" is. So grab your glasses, head outside, and enjoy one with me!
You will need:
Bacardi Frozen Mojito Mixer (usually in the freezer section right next to the Frozen Concentrated Orange Juice)
Clear Run (i.e. Bacardi Superior)
The instructions are on the can. Mix the frozen stuff, rum and club soda in a pitcher. Tear up some mint, squash it in your fingers, and put it in the glass. Squeeze some lime over it. Add ice, pour Mojito, garnish with more lime. DRINK!
As I mentioned, this is my favorite adult beverage. I hope you get a chance to try it out, and that you enjoy it as much as I do.
