Frozen Mojito Pie

Frozen Mojito Pie, my, oh, my… I was looking for a dessert to make for company this coming weekend with just the right springtime taste. I ran across a recipe for a Frozen Mojito Pie that seemed to require a bit of tweaking, but with a few changes it turned out just right – cool and refreshing and just a little tartness from the lime compliments the sweetness of the rest of the ingredients. Guess I’ll have to make another one for this weekend, ’cause I’m pretty sure this one will be gone by then…

Frozen Mojito

Yep. It’s a hot one today. Leaves me thirsting for something light, refreshing and ohhh so cold! Today’s mojito is a colder version of the perfect mojito with just a few slight adjustments. You’ll love the frosty, minty, limey goodness of this one!Frozen Mojito
(makes one)

2 oz. Bacardi Light Rum
Juice of 1/2 lime (about 1 tbsp.)
4 tsp. sugar
12 mint leaves
2 oz. Club Soda
1 c. ice

Muddle mint, sugar and lime in a glass. Add rum and club soda and stir gently. Strain out the mint leaves – unless you don’t mind a green drink – and pour the mixture into a blender. Add 1 cup ice and blend ’till frosty and smooth. Garnish with mint leaves and lime slices if you wish.

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.

Raspberry Mojito

Summertime is fresh fruit and berry time and today’s Mojito is made from one of my favorite berries – the raspberry. I tried it several ways, including using mint and raspberry infused simple syrup, but the following recipe makes such a tasty and refreshing cocktail that I had to choose this one to post!

Raspberry Mojito
(serves 1)

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.

Zesty Orange Mojito

We’re always on the look out for tasty new mojito recipes and ran across this one recently. The orange mixes very nicely with the lime and mint. A delicious taste of tropical citrus goodness –  good even in the winter when oranges are in high season. Almost like a little sunshine in your glass.


Zesty Orange Mojito
(makes 1)

1/2 orange cut into wedges
1/2 lime cut into wedges
2 teaspoons sugar
8 leaves fresh mint
2.5 ounces white rum
1 cup crushed ice

Put the oranges, limes, sugar, and mint in a tall glass. Muddle the leaves, orange wedges and lime wedges until juicy and fragrant. Add rum and ice. Shake vigorously, strain over ice in a smaller glass.  Garnish with mint and a slice of orange.

Frozen Berry Mojito

Nothing can beat the taste of a well made Classic Mojito, but during our recent trip to St. Maarten, we enjoyed a Wild Berry Mojito at Mary’s Boon that was totally different and really, really good! Turns out the bartender at Mary’s Boon won an award for the beverage but wouldn’t divulge the complete recipe. It was berrylicious and we could certainly taste a bit of lime and mint, but it was frozen – more like a daiquiri. When we returned home, we thought we would try to capture the flavors present in that scrumptious Wild Berry Mojito and searched for some berry mojito recipes.

We combined a few recipes and tweaked the ingredients to our liking and ended up with the following recipe, and although not quite as amazing as the one we had in St. Maarten, it’s pretty tasty! Perhaps the incredible view of Simpson Bay at Mary’s Boon has something to do with it?

Frozen Berry Mojito
(makes 1)

1 cup berries (we used blueberries and blackberries for the color)
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 tbsp. mint infused simple syrup (see recipe below)
2 oz. white rum

Combine all ingredients in a blender with 1 cup of ice. Blend until smooth and garnish with a sprig of mint.

Mint Infused Simple Syrup
Mix 1/2 cup water with 1/2 cup sugar in a saucepan and heat until the sugar dissolves. Then let it steep with a handful of mint leaves for an hour or so. Strain out the leaves and store in the fridge till you’re ready to use it.

Possible Variations
Change up the type of berries (strawberry, raspberry) to change the taste
Use frozen berries and slightly decrease the ice
Add more simple syrup if you like a sweeter drink or when using berries that are not as sweet
