Kiwi Mojitos

Why not? I love kiwi and I love mojitos, so why not a kiwi mojito? We experimented with this one a couple of times before coming up with this combination. If you like your mojitos sweeter, add a little more agave nectar or add 1/2 tsp. sugar to the mint leaves and agave sugar when you muddle. Kiwis add a few little seeds to the mix when you puree them, so be sure to strain or partially the mixture while pouring in a glass if you don’t care for the seeds. Enjoy!
