Ginger Beer Mojito

mojito

This spicy, sweet, minty concoction is very good and I highly recommend it.  If a regular mojito and a dark n’ stormy could have a baby, the ginger beer mojito would be that baby. The union of two top-notch cocktails to create a new rum king.  Just like Will and Kate’s new baby.  See that? It’s both tropical and topical.

Kind of a reach to correlate the two, but c’mon…doesn’t the cocktail above look pretty majestic? Like it could be the sweet nectar of the gods and kings?  The answer is yes. Yes it does.

Serves 1

Ingredients:

10-15 mint leaves
ice
1.5 oz. rum
1 oz lime juice
4 oz ginger beer
1 oz club soda
lime and mint for garnish, optional

Directions:

Place mint leaves and pour a small splash of ginger beer in a 12 oz glass. Using a pestle or a blunt utensil, muddle the mint until leaves are sufficiently broken.  Add ice. Pour rum, lime juice, ginger beer, and club soda.  Stir. Add garnish and serve.
