Mojito Mania - Raspberry, Guava and Mango Mojitos
Ingredients for traditional Mojito:
1/2 shot simple syrup 1 1/2 oz white rum 1 oz fresh lime juice
8 mint leaves 1 splash seltzer
Muddle mint leaves with rum. In cocktail shaker, add rum, mint, ice, simple syrup and lime juice. Shake vigorously and pour into glass. Pour splash seltzer into cocktail shaker and mix around, then pour over mojito. Garnish with lime wedge.
Use 2 oz mango flavored rum in place of white rum. Add a few pieces of diced mango when muddling.
Add 10 raspberries to mint and rum. Muddle well, then finish like normal mojito.
Add 1 oz guava nectar and increase rum to 2 oz.
