There is nothing sweeter than sipping a cold, tasty drink on a warm day. Except maybe this mojito.


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of honey
  • 1 cup of cherries (pitted)
  • 1/2 of a lime, sliced in wedges
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 1 ounce chilled club soda
  • Ice cubes
  • Garnish with mint leaves and cherries

Instructions:

cherry- honey puree:  (do this a couple of hours ahead of time so that it has time to chill). Boil 1 cup of water, then add 1 cup of honey and stir until dissolved. Let cool, then chill in the refrigerator until it gets very cold. Then, blend the chilled honey syrup with 1 cup of pitted cherries. Pour through a strainer, discard the cherry pulp and keep the sweetened cherry juice.

TO MAKE: In the bottom of a heavy drinking glass, combine the mint and lime wedges, using a muddler to smash them and release some of the mint. Add ice cubes, the cherry-honey puree, rum and club soda. Stir to combine. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and cherries.
