This easy Pomegranate Mojito is a delicious twist to the original. Have plenty of fresh mint on hand!
I'm a huge mojito fan and once summer rolls around they flow pretty freely around my house. I have three mint plants growing; two in pots and one in the garden. If you've ever grown mint, you know that it spreads and grows very easily, so I have enough mint already to last me another year – and that's if it stopped growing right now! But that's a great thing since I like to put a LOT of fresh mint into my mojitos. This Pomegranate Mojito uses a pomegranate liqueur which makes it a bit sweeter than my usual run-of-the-mill but the tartness balances it out nicely.
The key to this Pomegranate Mojito is that fresh mint is a MUST. If you don't have an absurd amount of it growing at your house, be sure to buy more than you think you'll need, especially because it's gorgeous as a garnish. I love how simple it is to throw this together (my cocktails of late have been slightly labor-intensive; my citrus squeezer actually broke from so much use)!
I've been doing quite of bit of summer entertaining and I am loving every minute of it! It's the first summer in my new house and I've worked really hard getting my yard, deck and patio looking fabulous. Summer cocktails are so much fun and this Pomegranate Mojito is one of my favorites (I have more cocktail recipes coming, too…a LOT more). I'm having a small get-together next week for my daughter's birthday; I'm making a big batch of these so everyone can simply pour their own. Easy-peasy.
