We had a family brunch at our house this weekend and I wanted to make a fruity afternoon beverage. I’ve always been a big fan of minty mojitos and I wanted to add in raspberries, my favorite fruit! I started off following this standard mojito recipe but made a lot of modifications along the way and even learned something.
This is where I did my first taste test. Yuck. It tasted way too much like just club soda and rum. I decided that in order to really get that mint flavor to come out, I was going to let it sit and ferment for a while. I threw a bunch of ice cubes in the pitcher and placed it in the fridge. After a few hours I poured myself a glass over crushed ice. There it was! A mojito just like the ones I have ordered at restaurants. It just needed a little time. Enjoy!
