Mojito is a classic drink, loved by everyone. The classic recipe is flavored with mint and lime but nowadays you can find all kinds of flavors, for instants Mojito´s with strawberry, passion fruit, blue berries, kiwi, raspberry etc. One of my new favorite Mojito variant is with cherry.
Makes one drink
6-8 Fresh Mint Leaves
4 cl White Rum (I tend to use Havana Club for my Mojito´s)
2-3 wedges of Fresh Limes
10 Fresh Cherries
1 table spoon Simple Syrup
1. Put the pitted cherries in a blender together with simple syrup and mix until smooth.
2. Squeeze the limes into the glass and add the mint leaves and rum. Muddle it all together. Fill the glass with ice.
3. Add the cherry juice and top with Sprite.
4. Garnish with fresh cherries and mint.
