MOJITO MOOD

Prep for Spring with a fun and fresh Mojito cocktail.

Spring is nearly here, and there is no better way to celebrate when warmer weather finally comes around than a cocktail outside. There’s nothing like that first weekend of warmth and sunshine after being bundled up inside all winter, and the occasion is certainly worthy of a refreshing drink! There is no cocktail more refreshing and spring-worthy than the mojito. This minty, citrusy drink originated in Havana, Cuba and is frequently said to be the favorite cocktail of author Ernest Hemingway. As soon as the warm weather hits, grab either our 12oz mason (coming soon ) or our 9oz flutes so you can enjoy an invigorating drink in the sun without having to worry about broken glass- our cups are shatterproof so you’re free to kick your shoes off. Since our glasses are recyclable as well, no need to worry about dishes after your afternoon indulgence! Follow the recipe below then just kick back, relax, and enjoy with friends and family.

What to do
    1. To prepare a classic mojito

      Put the 10 mint leaves in our 12oz mason or 9oz flute with one of the lime wedges, then use a muddler lightly crush them and release their flavor.

      Add the simple syrup with two more lime wedges, muddling again to release the lime juice.

      Fill the glass almost to the top with ice, adding the white rum and club soda to top off. Stir well to combine, adding more simple syrup and lime to taste, and then garnish with a lime wedge and mint sprig.

    2. To prepare a seasonal fruit mojito
      Place approximately ¼-⅓ cup of your chosen fruit in an ice tray with some mint leaves, placing 2 slices of fruit and 1-2 mint leaves in each cube.
      Fill the tray with water and freeze for at least 5 hours and up to overnight.
      Follow steps 1-3 for a classic mojito above, muddling ⅛ cup of the fruit of your choosing in the bottom of the glass with the mint and lime and utilizing the remaining fruit to fill up the glass with the ice cubes.
