It’s #CookoutWeek Day 3 and today’s recipe is joining forces (at the last minute) with Food ‘n Flix!
The movie is set in Spain and stars Penelope Cruz and guys. It is a weird, weird movie. I can’t even begin to give a synopsis, because it’s out there. Also subtitles.
What I did get was mojitos. And a middle of the night body dump. And also I only had dark rum. Therefore, dark mojitos!
So admission time, I’ve never actually had a mojito before and this is kind of a cheater mojito because I used sprite instead of lime + club soda. Also, the dark rum kinda takes over here, with the mint taking a back seat. Regardless, it’s totally delicious and the perfect addition to a backyard BBQ!
Adapted from Rum Therapy
8 mint leaves
Pinch of brown sugar
Splash of lime juice
1 ounce dark rum
3 oz sprite
Place the mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice in the bottom of a cup. Use a spoon with a rounded handle to muddle the leaves. Add ice, rum, and sprite and enjoy!
