Fresh mint is abounding in gardens and farmers markets everywhere this time of year. Including our own backyard patio. So I’ve been getting creative in the bartender area trying to whip up some fun cocktails featuring that fresh herb.

I’ve quickly discovered that mojitos are the perfect summer cocktail for mint. They taste so refreshing and they’re great for after-work happy hours, afternoons on the porch, weekend grill-outs, you name it.  Plus, they’re super quick to make and so vibrant. So I ask, what’s not to love?!

Mojitos are traditional made with white rum but I’ve even seen some made with vodka. My recipe is more of a classic mojito but there’s a ton of fruit options you could mix into this drink as well. Really the options are endless.
