My favorite drinks (with alcohol) are rum-based drinks. Mojitos are fairly easy to make, and can be taken to the next level when you add pomegranate! Check out this Pomegranate Mojito recipe – great for the holiday season – and let me know what you think.
Pomegranate, fruit removed
3-4 Limes, sliced
10-15 Mint Leaves (or more for decoration)
1 cup White Rum
6 cups lemon-lime soda
Wash and remove the fruit from a pomegranate.
Cut limes into thick slices.
Pour 6 cups soda and one cup of white rum into pitcher.
Split the pomegranate fruit in half. Squeeze juice from half the fruit into the pitcher.
Add the rest of the pomegranate fruit, lime slices and the mint leaves and allow fruit to soak for one hour.
Add four cups of ice and enjoy.
You can even try freezing some of the fruit to keep the drink cold even longer!
With New Year’s Even just a few days away, this would make a great drink to serve at any parties or gatherings. I think it would also be a great drink for awards season (the Oscars are two months away!)
