When our mint starts to go crazy we start thinking of recipes to put it to use. Besides our Thai Mint Chicken salad (Larb Gai) we most often start concocting different versions of mojitos like this citrusy Tangerine Mojito to make use of this delicious herb.
This is a refreshing perfect for summer cocktail at our home.
We encourage you to make one to enjoy this summer.
- 1/2 tangerine
- 2 limes
- 2 teaspoons organic blue agave syrup
- 1 or 2 sprigs fresh mint
- 2 1/2 ounces white rum
- 4 ounces club soda
- Slices of both tangerine or lime
- 1 cup ice
Squeeze the tangerine, limes and put agave syrup into a cocktail shaker. Muddle the mint in a large rocks glass by pressing them with a pestle or a wooden spoon until juicy and fragrant add to shaker. Add the rum and ice. In a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously, or stir, until combined and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, by the time the shaker mists up the drink is ready.) Serve in a glass with the tangerines and limes.
