Spiced Cherry Mojito
This mojito has been my jam for the last several weeks. The cherries bring a bold sweetness to counter the bite of the jalapeno. This cocktail is perfect for drinks with friends because there’s a bit of a presentation that goes with it. If you make this cocktail at your next gathering your friends will most definitely be impressed. I’ve provided the written instructions and a video tutorial below.
Remember the jalapeno simple syrup from the summer? We are going to use that simple syrup for this cocktail.
2-4 mint leaves
½ a lime
2 oz light rum
2 oz of jalapeno simple syrup
Muddle cherries, mint, and lime juice. Fill the glass with ice. Add rum and jalapeno simple syrup. Fill glass with club soda and stir.
