A new twist on a classic drink recipe, the ginger mojito

Ginger Mojito

The human mind is an amazing thing. We can somehow always remember when we had “the best” of something. I suppose that is why they have the Food Network show “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” The best mojito I ever had was at Bahama Breeze while in Florida on vacation. It was minty, without it being overpowering, and it was sweet and refreshing. They served it with a piece of sugar cane which was awesome! I’m not sure if I will ever be able to recreate that awesome mojito, but I did come up with another version which is just as fantastic: the ginger mojito!

If you are from Ohio or the midwest region you probably have heard of the awesome ginger soda Vernors. It’s much more gingery than ginger ale, but it’s not quite as strong ginger beer. I tried adding the Vernors rather than a traditional ginger ale to my mojito and I’m so glad I did! The balance of the mint and ginger is nice and smooth.

Making a mojito may sound intimidating, but it is so easy. All you have to do is muddle together your basic mojito ingredients: mint, lime juice, sugar or simple syrup, and white rum. I opt for sugar since I can’t make simple syrup. Simple syrup, jello, or thickening sauces are 3 things I just cant master (face palm).

Anyway! After you muddle together your main ingredients, all you have to do is add some ice, add your mixer, stir, and enjoy!

I love finding new flavor combinations that I love. Especially super simple ones that I can use from my pantry ingredients. I hope you give this ginger mojito a try. It is sweet, refreshing, and is a perfect summer cocktail.
