Cool, fresh and crisp this Pomegranate Mojito is a fabulous summer cocktail! I particularly love how sparkly and festive it looks!
I really enjoy mojitos. Really what’s not to love? They are so refreshing with a lovely mint flavor and that lemon juice really brightens them up. Just a perfect match with white rum. Add some fresh pomegranate to the mix and you have a beautiful showstopper of a cocktail!
The recipe for this Pomegranate Mojito is just as simple as it can get. I just muddled some pomegranate arils, fresh mint leaves, sugar and lemon slices along with the rum in a glass. At this point, you can strain the mixture into another glass ( I didn’t bother with this step) and top it with ice and some club soda. Since my pomegranates were quite juicy and sweet, I didn’t feel the need to use much sugar in this recipe. Not a big fan of sweet cocktails anyways!
Like all cocktail recipes, this one is also very accommodating. Add more rum if you like, or more sugar. As much or as little mint as you prefer. And oh, did I tell you, leave the rum out and you’ll have a delicious mocktail!?! That’s what I made for my mom and kids. A little bit of sparkle is nice to make a Friday evening special!
Mojitos are also very versatile. Add some berries if you want. Mangoes, peaches, cherries, would be lovely in here. I think next on my list is a spicy version though… stay tuned for that one!
