CANDY CANE MOJITOS
Who doesn't want a great drink along with their delicious meal? Well, I LOVE a nice cold cocktail for special occasions. There is nothing like a mojito that not only taste good but smells awesome as well.
Try this fabulous drink inspired by the most popular candy during the winter holidays (peppermint candy canes)!!
Super easy to make and prepare in ten minutes flat. This drink is for two people only so add more ingredients as needed for a larger group.
3 oz (2 jiggers or 6 tablespoons) rum
- tablespoons crushed peppermint candies or candy canes
- cup fresh mint leaves
- Sparkling water
- peppermint candies or candy canes
- Into each of 2 tall clear glasses, pour 1 1/2 ounces (1 jigger or 3 tablespoons)
- Top each with layers of ice, 1 tablespoon crushed candy and 1/2 cup mint leaves. Fill each glass with sparkling water. Serve immediately.
