Mojitos are one of my favorite drinks ever and they're perfect for cooling down during the summer months. Guess what? They're also very simple to make. I bought a bunch of mint at the farmers' market over the weekend, and that gave me over a dozen mojitos. A dozen very delicious mojitos.
The secret to a great mojito is to infuse your syrup with mint. That also keeps you from having to muddle more mint into the drink, thus reducing the chances of those pesky leaves getting stuck to your teeth when you take a long swig.
Since mojitos are probably the most complex drink I'd ever venture making, I don't actually own a muddler. But my rolling pin worked extremely well as one. I also use it to crush toast for crumbs. Don't you love it when your kitchen utensils are multi-utility?
Do you like my Alice in Wonderland glasses? I used to have 4 of these suckers (which I got from Urban Outfitters years ago), and we've broken 2, which makes me sad. I've been searching for similar ones with the Tenniel illustrations, but with no luck. So yeah, you bet I'm extremely careful with the two I have left!
