Apple Mojito

 Yet another good way to use those delicious fresh apples this fall – make Apple Mojitos! Brown sugar tastes so good with apples and we preferred  lemon juice over lime (which is normally used for mojitos).
Mmmm…enjoy the taste of fall!

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!

Kiwi Mojitos
(serves 2)

3 – 4 oz. white rum
2 ripe Kiwi’s
1.5 Tbsp Agave Nectar
12 mint leaves
splash of lime juice
Club Soda
Mint and kiwi wheels for garnish

Gently muddle mint leaves with agave syrup and splash of lime. Set aside. In a blender or food processor, puree the kiwis and the rum. Gently fold in the mint, agave and lime.

Pour into a rocks glass with ice and fill to the top of the glass with club soda. Garnish with mint and a kiwi wheel.

Melon Mojito

Can you ever have too many Mojito Recipes? Of course not! Our favorite will always be the traditional Perfect Mojito, but during the summer, these fruity mojitos are perfect themselves – so sweet, light and refreshing!

8 fresh mint leaves
8 fresh raspberries
2 tsp turbinado (raw sugar)
Juice of 1  1/2 limes (about 3 tbsp.)
2 0z. white rum
Club Soda
Ice

Muddle the sugar and raspberries until pureed. Add mint leaves and gently muddle until the flavor is released. Add the lime, rum and ice and then fill to the top with club soda. Gently stir. Garnish with lime wheels, mint and a couple of raspberries.
