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