Pomegranate Mojito

Published July 1, 2012 by jenmatteson

I feel like mojitos are getting huge lately.  Everywhere I go, every place has their own take and their own “special flavor” of mojitos.  I don’t feel like I really jumped on this bandwagon of mojitos, but while waiting for an old friend on a hot hot patio, I gave in.  I ordered the pomegranate mojito because it just sounded so refreshing.  It was.  And it was amazing.  Since I still had mint leftover in my fridge from the watermelon-mint jello shots that I wanted to use up, I thought this was a great idea.

From the menu, the only hints I got for ingredients were Bacardi Razz and, of course, pomegranate juice.  But, that helped a lot, because when I recreated it at home with a few extra ingredients, I felt like I was right back on that patio!  Our neighbors were having a party and we each walked over, drinks in had.  The hosts both tried them and loved them.  When I went home to refill our drinks, I was instructed to bring a pitcher of these mojitos.  They were tasty!
