Orange Mojito Recipe

Happy Hour: Orange Mojito

It's Friday and that means it's the perfect time to channel your inner bartender by making a delicious drink. How about one that's refreshing and fruity, too? This mojito has the classic ingredients — mint, lime, rum — but orange is thrown into the mix. Fresh muddled oranges and Grand Marnier give it a vibrant orange flavor that's not overpowering, but rather, delightful. I enjoyed this drink so much, I'm definitely going to make it again. In fact, I might be all about the mojito this Spring, so watch out! The recipe, right this way.

I've had a mojito with orange juice in the Dominican Republic. They called it a barfly. I don't think it had the grand marnier, though. It's really tasty. You could get pitchers of it at one bar.

That looks so tasty and easy to rationalize that you're getting a bunch of vitamin C!
