So, we met up with a few friends and did just that. The kids had a blast; swimming, sliding, lounging in the little lazy river and running all over splash island. While they were keeping themselves busy the adults got a chance to visit and catch up.
I was telling my friend about the #mojitoMonday series I was doing this summer and she was beyond excited! We chatted about some of the various flavors I had made and then asked if I had made a frozen mojito yet. No. I said, and that quickly followed with an "I don't know why in the world I haven't". She told me she had gone to a restaurant that featured frozen mojitos and it was one of the best drinks she'd sipped on.
So, once I heard the words frozen and mojito in the same sentence I immediately knew that the frozen mojito had to be in this series.
Without further adieu I present you all with this amazingly cool, refreshing and delicious frozen mojito. Packed full of freshly squeezed, tart lime juice, cool mint and a splash of simple syrup for sweetness; these simple ingredients plus some ice are all you need to make this cocktail.
This frozen mojito is to adults what icee's are to kiddos. I love this cool twist on one of my favorite cocktails; the perfect cocktail for summer.
1/3 Cup fresh squeezed lime juice
12-14 Mint Leaves
1/4 Cup simple syrup
3 Oz rum
2 1/2-3 Cups ice
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Divide between 2 glasses, garnish with a lime wedge and mint leaves if desired. Serve.
