Mojitos by the Pitcher Recipe
This recipe whips up a whole pitcher of mojitos with plenty of mint leaves and limes for a refreshing summer drink. Pour one for you and 5 friends and enjoy.
Tastes great. I followed the recipe but didn't use as much lime or mint as directed, although I did quarter 2 limes and halved and juiced 1 more and dropped it in the mix - used maybe 20-25 leaves. I recommend not muddling the mint in the sugar too hard because it shreds the mint into tiny bits that get stuck all over your mouth. I also used some rum in my sugar and mint to rinse out the bowl and then pour into the pitcher. Happy drinking all!!
Excellent recipe—great proportion recommendations, especially in regards to the amount of mint. I must admit, however, that I doubled the amount of alcohol to two cups and did not find it overpowering. Some may think there is too much sugar, in which case they can just use a little less than recommended. However, considering it makes an entire pitcher, one 1/2 cup is not an overwhelming amount of sugar. Additionally, the steps could be a little revamped; I find the mint flavour (Canadian here) is absorbed better when it is ground up with the juice of the limes in addition to the sugar.
Delicious and refreshing mojitos made with sparkling water are a pitcher cocktail perfect for a summer dinner party or backyard barbeque.
This was my first attempt on making a mojito and after all the sites I went to I finally gave up and just picked this one. It's amazing I haven't had a mojito this good in a while. It's easy quick and delicious. I used 1 1/2 cups of captain Morgan white rum. Good stuff :D
Had to modify it a bit to fit my pitcher and I don't usually keep club soda on hand. 36 mint leaves 3 limes 1 cup simple sugar 2 cups water Add water or alcohol as needed to taste.
Fresh watermelon, mint, and white rum star in this delicious and refreshing mojito recipe that makes a perfect drink for summertime parties and BBQs.
