Summer is almost here, and this means you're almost sure to see a mojito on a patio or beach in the near future. Be prepared with a mojito recipe that will impress your friends and leave you feeling refreshed. aja features a fun twist on the traditional mint and lime based mojito by adding fresh cranberries to the concoction; you'll find it on our 'snak-bar' menu. If you'd like to try a different varietal of berry in your mojito, just ask the bartender to make either a blackberry, strawberry, raspberry, and even a tangerine mojito. All of which are as equally refreshing. Here's the recipe:
In a pint glass, muddle:
three lime wedges
three mint sprigs
small handful of cranberries (or any fruit)
and .50oz simple syrup. Simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water, boiled, then cooled.
Add 2.0oz Bacardi rum and shake
Pour into a rocks glass and garnish with a mint sprig and lime wedge. Enjoy!
