Happy Friday everyone! It seems a bit silly to think that it’s winter with the beautiful weather we’ve been have…but it technically is. With that in mind, here is a modern spin on a classic favorite—the mojito. I always try to find new ways to reinvent such a delicious drink and this concoction is absolutely delightful. Cheers!
~1 shot of clear rum
~1/2 shot of brandy
~Heavy splash of apple cider
~Small pinch of cinnamon
~7-10 fresh mint leaves
*In a martini shaker, muddle lime wedge (extract oils from the rind), mint leaves, and a small pinch of brown sugar. Add ice, cinnamon, brandy, and apple cider. Shake well and serve on the rocks in a brown-sugar-rimmed glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
Note: I’ve been dreaming up a whole new slew of drink recipes and we will be fixing and mixing them this weekend with Kelly. I should be back in a few weeks with the newest batch of tasty treats…so get ready!
