I know I said last week that I’d share a couple of salad recipes for these extremely hot and humid days ahead but this cocktail is practically a salad and is certainly refreshing! We made these play-on-mojitos on Saturday night while I tested a couple hot dog recipes, fried some fresh zucchini from the market and roasted fresh Goat Lady CSA beets for a salad with stilton. We made these “Phojitos” using Thai Mint and Basil from the Super G Mart. A couple of years ago I grew my own Thai Basil and it was extremely successful in a sunny spot – if you’re so interested.
Nothing says summer like a mojito and this was a nice change that paired well with the menu. Give it a try next time you’re enjoying the grill outside!
- 2 ounces – or so – rum
- 12 Thai Mint and Basil leaves
- 1 tbsp simple syrup
- Lime Juice
- 2 oz club soda
Muddle mint, basil and lime together. Add simple syrup, rum and top with club soda! Enjoy!
