Blood Orange Mojito

 

Serves 2

 

1 1/2 ounces spiced rum

12 fresh mint leaves

1/2 cup blood orange juice

2 tablespoons agave nectar or honey

1 cup ice

club soda

 

Place the mint leaves and blood orange juice in a glass and, using a muddle stick (or the handle of a wooden spoon), push down so that you’re crushing the leaves.

Take the shaker and add the ice, the muddled mint and juice, the agave nectar, and the rum.

Close up your shaker and shake for at least 10 seconds.

Pour into a glass.

Top with a splash of club soda.

Serve.

 

I’m on a roll with blood orange cocktails.  I still have one more to post!  Everything just tastes so good with blood orange juice right now!
