This Ginger Mojito Recipe is my new favorite summertime drink. While potent, it is also crisp and refreshing. The combination of Ginger, Mint, and Lime is just what you need for a relaxing evening or social gathering.
Plus, the act of muddling is a GREAT stress reliever.
Ginger Mojito Recipe
- 1-12 ounce Ginger Beer the alcoholic kind
- 3 ounce Light Rum
- 1 Lime cut into 8ths
- Mint Leaves to taste I like to use Mojito mint
- Simple Syrup to taste
In a cocktail mixer add your lime sections, mint, and rum; muddle until all your frustrations are gone.
Add some ice and simple syrup (to taste) to, 2-10oz cocktail glasses and then divide the mint mixture between each glass. I prefer to strain the mixture as I pour.
Next pour ½ of the Ginger beer into each glass, (or if it has been a particularly stressful day, pour it all into one large glass).
Garnish with additional mint leaves and a slice of lime if you like and ENJOY!!!
I joke about muddling being a great way to relieve frustrations, but seriously I know that smashing the crap outta things is a great way to get your frustrations out. Seriously, even if you don’t drink you should learn to prepare this beverage for other simply for the fun of smashing the mint and lime. 😉
**If you are concerned about calories please note that the estimation my recipe program is making this drink is off. It is roughly half of the calories shown, depending on how much simple syrup you prefer.
I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute of it. Okay… well, enjoying nearly every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where food, spirituality play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach different cooking classes for adults on subjects of making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and efficient, recipe creation, and how to make cooking a part of your Magickal and spiritual practice.
From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most basic-mundane task and make it Magickal!
