Gin and Ginger Mojito

I consider myself a bit of a mojito snob. I can’t stand it when I order one at a restaurant, and they use mojito mix to make it. What the heck is mojito mix? A good mojito is made with mint, lime, and sugar. Why on Earth would you need a pre-made mix for that? And don’t get me started on the ones made with vodka.

So, I cringe at calling the recipe I’m about to give you a mojito. Really, the only thing they have in common is the mint. That and the crisp, refreshing, citrusy burst of flavor that’s perfect for enjoying by the pool. It looks like a mojito, but the taste is completely original.

This drink is made with gin. Tanqueray is my favorite, but my hubby bought Gordon’s, so that’s what I used this time. Really, any gin will do. And rather than club soda or sparkling water, you’re going to need to get some alcoholic ginger beer. I use Crabbie’s. I’ve bought it at Spec’s and World Market, but depending on their selection, your local grocery store may carry it. I use pint glasses to mix it, so most of the beer will fit.
