Momjitos!

Standard

Allrecipes.com is one of my favourite sites for recipes and cooking ideas.  I came across a Mojito recipe and gave it my own little twist by substituting raspberries for strawberries and taking some of the suggestions from fellow reviewers.  I have aptly named it “Momjitos”.

Ingredients

  1. White Sugar for the rim, although coloured sugar gives it an aesthetic appeal
  2. 1 large lime, quartered
  3. 1/2 bunch of mint leaves
  4. 1/2 cup of sugar
  5. 2 cups of mashed raspberries
  6. 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice
  7. White rum
  8. Lemon Lime pop drink (or club soda, depends on your preference)
  9. Ice cubes

Directions 

  1. Pour 1/4 inch of sugar in a shallow dish.  Run a lime quarter around the rim of each of the glasses, dip into the sugar and set aside.
  2. To create the simple syrup, mix 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice and 2 cups of mashed raspberries, bring to a boil, then simmer for 3 minutes, remove from heat, strain through a cheese cloth and let cool.
  3. Add 2 tbsp of simple syrup to each glass then add mint and remaining lime, and muddle.
  4. Add 1 shot of rum, top with lemon lime drink and ice and stir.  Enjoy!
