There are plenty of whiskey drinks out there for St. Patrick’s Day, so today I want to share a mojito recipe with you! Since this drink features three green ingredients it is delicious and festive! It’s also perfect for this weather that seems to be warming up. Hope you enjoy!
Ingredients: mint, lime, cucumber, simple syrup, crushed ice, light rum, club soda
Directions: (this recipe serves 1)
– Muddle 6 mint leaves in the bottom of a glass
– Cut lime into quarters
– Squeeze three quarters into glass and drop them in (save one quarter for garnish)
– Cut cucumber into thin slices and drop 3 slices into glass (save one slice for garnish)
– Add 2 tablespoons of simple syrup
– Fill the glass with crushed ice
– Add 1 (or 2) shots of light rum
– top off with club soda
– garnish glass with 1 lime quarter and 1 cucumber slice
You can also make a virgin mojito which is just as delicious, just leave out the rum!
Interesting recipe love it!

Looks so good! Fantastic photography!
simple syrup is just 2 parts sugar dissolved in 1 part sugar. Dissolve the sugar into boiling water. Allow to cool completely before using.
What a great tutorial with amazing pictures, now I want to make this as well!
Very pretty (and tasty, I’m sure!).
I loveeeeeeeeeee this photo….and also the drink! ;p
Mmmm I must try one soon! Have checked your blog…… I don’t understand what Simple Syrup is.
Great photos of a yummy drink!

After looking at your photos more, I think I REALLY need to run to the store so I can make one of these! Thanks again for guest posting! =]
haha, it’s pretty easy! and it is also great without the rum if you want a daytime drink 🙂
