Recipe For Ginger Mojito Cocktail

Happy Hour: Mo'Gingerito

Waiting for a table at a Caribbean joint a few weeks back, my friends and I were enchanted — possibly a bit too enchanted — by the ginger mojito on the cocktail menu. Fresh and crisp like the traditional rum drink but with a kick of aromatic ginger to balance the tang of the lime and the coolness of the mint, these mo'gingeritos were so good, I had to replicate the recipe.

While I have no idea how the restaurant made its cocktail, my at-home version tasted remarkably similar. So get gingery at your next Summer soiree with this delicious recipe.

Though I didn't have any fresh ginger, this drink would also be good using fresh ginger muddled with the mint. But the Santa Cruz Organics brand of ginger ale was definitely gingery enough without it.

  5. 1/2 cup club soda
  6. 12 to 16 ounces of light rum

  3. Stir in lime juice and rum. Right before serving, add ginger ale and soda.
