Spiced Cherry Mojito
Updated: Aug 30, 2021
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.
3-5 cherries 2-4 mint leaves ½ a lime Ice 2 oz light rum 2 oz of jalapeno simple syrup Club soda
Muddle cherries, mint, and lime juice.
Fill the glass with ice.
Add rum and jalapeno simple syrup.
Fill glass with club soda and stir.
