Yesterday was Wednesday, which seemed like a good day for a mojito!
I should also tell you that I consider any day which ends with the letter “Y” a good day for a mojito 😉
My sweet friend Charlotte is getting married in 10 days. She came over last night for a little pre-wedding relaxation. I thought this would be the perfect beverage to help her lighten up and enjoy some time away from the wedding craziness!
Did you know that cherries actually help calm the nervous system? So cool, right?
- ¼ cup fresh mint
- 3 limes (sliced)
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 cups fresh cherries (pitted)
- 12 oz rum
- ½ cup water
- 750 ml sparkling lime water
Begin by adding the fresh mint and limes to the bottom of a pitcher or punch bowl.
Add the sugar, then muddle with the back of a large spoon or a muddler.
Add the cherries and muddle.
Add the rum, water and sparkling water. Mix well.
Fill the pitcher with ice then pour into a glass and garnish with fresh cherries and mint leaves.
This punch is light, refreshing, bubbly perfection.
Making a large pitcher of mojitos is perfect for parties so that you can enjoy the festivities without spending 5 minutes preparing a single cocktail for each guest.
