Walk the Plank

Argggg! Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day so we thought we’d post a rum drink recipe worthy of a Pirate’s Happy Arrr – ’cause Rum Therapy Cures What Ails Ye! We found several versions of this drink on the web, but thought this one from drinksmixer.com sounded the best with a slight adaptation. It’s strong and easy to make – so enjoy ye scallywags!

Walk the Plank

(makes one)

1 oz Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1 oz Malibu Coconut Rum
1 oz RedRum (rum infused with mango, pineapple, coconut and cherry)
7 – Up Soda
2  cherries

Pour rums over ice. Fill with 7-Up. Stir. Garnish with cherries. Float a teaspoon of cherry juice on the top.

Green Tea Mojito

A healthy Mojito? Well, this one DOES contain green tea and can be made sugar-free, so if you need to keep it light, this is one to try! I ran across a recipe recently on the website Skinnytaste, for an Iced Green Tea Mojito. Always on the lookout for new mojito recipes, we whipped up a batch. We used Stevia as a sweetener to keep the sugar content and calories low, but you could also use raw sugar or agave syrup. Although not my favorite mojito recipe (the Perfect Mojito can’t be beat in my opinion!), it is light, sugar free (when Stevia is used) and refreshing and includes the antioxidant green tea!

Green Tea Mojito
(Makes 1)
Adapted from Skinnytaste

1 tbsp fresh lime juice
6 mint leaves
1/2 to 1 packet Stevia (Stevia can be quite sweet, so start with just 1/2 packet and adjust to taste)
1/2 cup brewed green tea, chilled
1.5 oz white rum

Muddle the lime juice, mint, Stevia. Add ice until glass is about 3/4 full and then pour in rum and green tea. Stir and garnish with mint leaves.
