The classic mojito is my favorite cocktail, but lately I've been trying new spins of my old favorite. I've been playing with some fruit and herbal infusions (watermelon + basil is a favorite!) and experimenting with different flavors, like this floral version using St-Germain!St-Germain Mojito, Serves One
Fresh mint leaves
1 ounce St-Germain
1 ounce light rum
1 tablespoon honey
In a tall glass muddle 5+ fresh mint leaves with honey. Add St-Germain, Rum, and juice of half a lemon and half a lime. Add ice and top off with club soda, mixing well with a long spoon. If you like it extra sweet, add a little more simple syrup! Garnish with limes and an edible flower. Enjoy!
To make your own simple syrup: Simmer equal parts water and sugar over low/medium heat for 15 to 18 minutes. Store in a sealed container in your refrigerator. This can last for several months.I hope you enjoy this refreshing spin on a classic drink. If you like this you might also want to check out a few of my other springtime favorites...
