Is there a more refreshing summer cocktail than a mojito? As I was cooking up a storm (literally, my kitchen looks like it has been hit) of different dishes containing fresh cherries, my wonderful husband asked if I could spare a tablespoon of cherries. With 30 lbs to go through…what do you think my answer was? Haha, anyway, he made this amazingly refreshing summer cocktail utilizing fresh mint from our garden and cherries. Sooo good, I think i’ll have to set some cherries aside and keep dropping hints so he’ll make more.
- 2 Tablespoons Cherries and their juice (12 cherries to be exact)
- 6-8 mint leaves
- 2 shot glasses full of rum
- 8oz grapefruit juice
