Pineapple Mojito

Did you know that you can grow all kinds of mint? Pineapple mint, chocolate mint, lemon mint, apple mint, and banana mint, just to name a few. I had no idea! This Pineapple Mojito calls for pineapple mint, if you have it, or can find it at your local store. If not, your cocktail will be ruined and you should just get yourself a sad little wine cooler and go sulk in the corner. I’m kidding! Regular mint will work too. 🙂

4 oz pineapple rum*
4 oz pineapple juice
8 lime wedges
20+ pineapple mint or regular mint leaves
2 oz mojito mix
club soda

*To make your own pineapple rum, please refer to this post.

Lightly muddle lime wedges and pineapple mint leaves in 2 hurricane glasses (because they’re fancy) and fill with ice. In a cocktail shaker, shake rum, pineapple juice and mojito mix with ice and strain into glasses. Top with a couple of splashes of club soda, add a straw and gently stir. Garnish with a lime wedge, pineapple chunk, or mint leaf.
