Summer calls for fruity drinks and keeping cool with Frosty Peach Mojitos is one of the best ways to refresh! Real peach juice, rum and lime combined with a little sugar, mint and club soda! A little bit of effort with a whole lot of flavor! Bring the weekend on!
The heat has been bringing even more of the beverage making machine in me lately. I’ve been drinking a lot of Mango Lassi, Blueberry Smoothies (strawberry too!) and the other evening I decided it was time to make a Peach Mojito.
Not too long ago I was treated to lunch at 1844 house. The owner/chef, Brian Walker, invited me to join him for a lunch prepared by him and I talked to him about his restaurant run by himself and his wife Jenny. In the near future I will have a post about their place and their concept of food – which I totally agree with! If you are in this area, you must go there! While there, I saw on his drink menu a Peach Mojito. I mentioned the drink to him because it attracted my attention immediately – I love peach anything and when it comes to booze :it is no exception – AND I love Mojitos!
I decided to try my hand at Mojito making with peaches. It has been on my mind ever since that lunch with Brian. The weather this week was perfect for making a Frosty Cool Peach Mojito so I set about it, made them last night and tonight, when I wanted to make a Strawberry drink? Grumpy wanted Peach Mojitos. So we had them again tonight!. I hope you will enjoy!
Frosty Cook Peach Mojito
Serves 4 or 2 if you want more than one! 😉 adapted from myrecipes.com

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed mint leaves

2 cups club soda, chilled
