Making Mojitos is kind of my “thing”…  I have become known in my neighborhood for my Mojitos.. and there is always a pitcher just waiting to be served!  I sometimes make flavored mojitos (like watermelon) but I always love a classic mojito best!

I buy fresh limes when they go on sale and juice them all using an inexpensive electric juicer.  I divide the fresh lime juice into 1 cup portions in little freezer bags and freeze it.  Whenever anyone pops over I just use the frozen lime juice straight from the freezer and add in the other ingredients.  If you’re just doing one pitcher of mojitos, a citrus reamer works perfectly too!

For my daughter, I make a non-alcoholic mojito the exact same way without the rum and she loves them!  These are great with vodka too and you can easily adjust the sweetness by adding more or less simple syrup!

Since my garden is crazy full of mint every year, this is the perfect way to enjoy it!
