On the Rocks: Winter Mojito

Happy Friday everyone! It seems a bit silly to think that it’s winter with the beautiful weather we’ve been have…but it technically is. With that in mind, here is a modern spin on a classic favorite—the mojito. I always try to find new ways to reinvent such a delicious drink and this concoction is absolutely delightful. Cheers!


~1 shot of clear rum

~1/2 shot of brandy

~Heavy splash of apple cider

~Small pinch of cinnamon

~7-10 fresh mint leaves

~Lime wedge

~Brown sugar

*In a martini shaker, muddle lime wedge (extract oils from the rind), mint leaves, and a small pinch of brown sugar. Add ice, cinnamon, brandy, and apple cider. Shake well and serve on the rocks in a brown-sugar-rimmed glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick.


Note: I’ve been dreaming up a whole new slew of drink recipes and we will be fixing and mixing them this weekend with Kelly. I should be back in a few weeks with the newest batch of tasty treats…so get ready!

    Nice. I have a similar low-calorie version that I call a Skinny Apple Pie Mojito.
