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!
