Blood Orange Mojito
Blood oranges are my favorite (obviously) and I love using them in cocktails. This beautiful colored twist on the classic mojito is the perfect Valentines Day cocktail! Easy to make and so delicious- cheers to that.
1/2 lime, sliced
1/2 blood orange, sliced
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
1 oz simple syrup (equal parts sugar & water brought to a simmer and chilled)
2 oz white Rum
In a shaker muddle together the lime, blood orange, and mint until all of the juices are released
To the shaker add in the simple syrup, rum, and ice. Put the lid on and shake vigorously until chilled
Strain into a glass filled with ice, top with club soda, and garnish with fresh mint leaves and a slice of blood orange. Cheers!
