Cool, refreshing with that minty mojito hit, this Mango Peach Mojito can be ready in less than 5 minutes and is full of coconut, peach, lime and mint flavors!

Last summer I made “Frosty Cool Peach Mojitos” and while they were really yummy, they were somewhat time consuming because you would use fresh peaches.  Eventually Grumpy and I moved on to having “Sex on the Beach” which was a whole lot easier and quicker to make, but it had no peaches.

This summer, we are living much closer to real civilization and I actually found peach and mango nectar in the regular grocery store!  I grabbed a can of each knowing I was going to make me a mojito with it.  When I was in Indianapolis a few weeks ago I had a mango peach mojito at Cheeseburger in Paradise….and decided that I had to try making one of them myself when I got home!

The former residents of our unit had fresh mint growing right outside our back door.  What a treasure trove that was to find! I knew I would be making some mojitos this summer and what better day to try it out then on July 4th?  Finding fresh mint was an issue when we were living north because you couldn’t always get it in the store!  It’s like a mint heaven having the fresh mint growing right at home.

For July 4th holiday, Grumpy and I did some driving around with our GPS and looking up some homes we thought we might be interested in.  No luck with the homes, but after arriving back home I brined up some baby back ribs (Guy Fieri style) and put them on the grill. I slathered with some Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce before they were to come off the grill.  We sat back had a delicious meal and refreshed with a Mango Peach Mojito!  If you can get your hands on some peach and mango nectar, I suggest you try this drink out asap!  Not only is it fruity, it is the perfectly refreshing, cool summer drink to enjoy on a really hot day.

    I will have to try this. I planted my own herbs in pots this year for that same reason. I hate driving all over the North Country looking for something and can't find it.

    Everyone must have been making mojitos for the 4th. We had to go to 4 stores before finding some mint!
    Being my first time making mojitos, I stuck to the traditional recipe, but I can't wait to try this twist!
