Have you ever had a long week and realize its only Tuesday? Today is definitely one of those days for me. So nothing is better after a long hot day than coming home to a Mojito. Mojito's have a special place in my heart, maybe it's because they remind me of the parts of spring break I can remember or maybe its the fresh mint and full chunks of sugar that can be found in the bottom of your glass-- either way a mojito is one of my go-tos. However, it is so hard to find a decent mojito out in the wild and Bartenders HATE to make them (never forget Jax Taylor refuses to muddle). So I was so happy to discover Stirrings' simple mojito mix-- now I can have a mojito in the comfort of my own home where no one can pretend that they're "out of mojitos" and would you "like a beer instead."
Ingredients for one:
-Cup of crushed ice
- handful of fresh blackberries (set some aside for garnish)
-1oz of grenadine
-seltzer or soda water (a splash)
-Shot of rum (or two Idk what kind of day you're having)
-Stirrings Pomegranate Rimmer
How to make it:
-throw ice, mojito mix, blackberries and rum into the blender
-Prep glass by rimming with lime juice and dipping in the rimmer-salt mixture.
-Pour & Enjoy!
