Mango Rum Mojito

Mango Rum Mojito

This is my favorite summer drink and it is the house drink at all of our parties.  I found a great cheat for the drink.  Instead of juicing hundreds of fresh limes (ok I exaggerate – but it’s a lot!), I use frozen limeade concentrate.  That way I can always have it on hand if someone drops by and I can make as large or small a batch as I need.  For 10 drinks I take a pitcher and thaw 2 cans of limeade and pour it into the pitcher.  Then add the juice of 2 limes, and two thinly sliced limes.  If you want, you can add any kind of berry and blueberries are really good in it.  I have a large mint plant growing outside and I take several large stems and remove the leaves, rip them up and add them to the juice.  Take a wooden spoon and muddle it all together and store in the refrigerator until you need it.  To make a drink, add ice to a tall glass, a splash of mango rum, some lime mix, and top it off with some sparkling water.  Give it a stir and serve.  You can garnish with fresh mint and a slice of lime.  There are so many rums on the market now like citrus, spiced, coconut, raspberry ~ it goes on and on and it’s fun to experiment with the different rums.  This drink is also a good non-alcoholic drink and kids love it.  It’s so refreshing and the lime cuts the sweetness which is delicious.  Click here for the recipe….
