Pumpkin Mojito Recipe

Pumpkin Mojitos Sound So Wrong but Taste So Right

It might sound odd, but this festive Fall take on a classic Cuban cocktail — the mojito — is wonderfully balanced and quite refreshing. The pumpkin doesn't overpower the drink; instead, it enhances the flavor of the rum, mint, and lime. Since rum is the only spirit, select a high-quality one like Pusser's dark rum.
