Cherry Mojitos

Post by Patchez »

Makes 5 servings.

1 cup water
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 1/2 cups cherries (pitted fresh, reserve a few for garnish)
20 fresh mint leaves (or so good-sized)
2 limes
8 ounces white rum
club soda (chilled)
ice cubes (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
1. Prepare a simple syrup (do this a couple of hours ahead of time- or longer- so that it has time to chill). > Boil water, add sugar and stir until dissolved. Let cool, then chill in the refrigerator until it has a chance to get very cold.

2. In a blender or food processor, blend chilled simple syrup and cherries. Pour through a strainer, discard the cherry pulp and keep the sweetened cherry juice.

3. Place 4 to 5 mint leaves in the bottom of 4 to 6 tall glasses. Squeeze half a lime into each glass. Add 2 ounces of rum to each glass. Use a muddler (or the handle of a wooden spoon) to smash the mint leaves, lime juice and rum together. Divide the sweetened cherry juice between the four glasses. Top each drink off with chilled club soda. Stir, garnish with fresh cherries and serve. Add an ice cube or two, if desired.

So I tried this. I opted for cherry pie filling so I didn't need to make the simple syrup or fuck around with a blender. Just added a lil rum to loosen um the cherry slurry.

All in all not bad. One thing that was odd was the mint. Didn't really go well with it. As long as there is muddled vegetation, simple syrupish and rum it can still be a mojito right? Or is that going the route of the bastardized martini? Could be a slippery slope.

I'll report back as more booze flows.

I'll bet the apple pie one would be pretty tasty with the muddled mint. Wait, forget the mint. Muddle some cheddah cheese slices. Goes great with apple pie, ya know.

I`ll always blame mint.

You have to be careful with it or turn everything into toothpaste, esp. when heated
Drinking heavily is a basic instinct

To be honest I do like Mojito's. Only if they're made correctly concerning the mint. The proper way is to "bruise" the mint either with a muddle stick and a bit of sugar or smacking it on something like a table top. I've had some that the bartender chops the mint like chopped parsley which is terrible when you get a mouthful of bits of mint you have to eventually swallow.
Good refreshing drink when it's hot!

Should we remind him that one of the biggest wimps ever, Hemingway was a fan of the mojito. What a pussy that guy was.

Yeah, riiiight? I mean, staggering out of the jungle after his plane crashed, with a bottle of gin in one hand and his banana in the other.

Hmmm... Mint and gin...

If I recall a Mojito with gin instead of rum is a Southside. Or at least very similar to a Southside.

Or a Downside? Ya know because he crashed in the jungle. Dude couldn't even land a plane correctly. Jeez.
Bananas and Gin, however: muddle the bananas?
