than one, so stock up on mint and get a friend to help you muddle (your
arms will get a nice workout if you are making for a group)!
*Organic Rum: It
is difficult to find producers of truly organic rum, but Crusoe Rum is
an outstanding rum made with organic molasses and pure, fair-trade
sugarcane. In addition, for every bottle sold, 1 month of clean water is
provided to people in need around the world! For more on Crusoe Rum, click here.
Eco-Mojito Alternative: Want to step up the antioxidant level of this cocktail and add a little extra flavor? Try the Blueberry Eco-Mojito!
To make, just add 1/4 cup of blueberries to the cocktail muddler after
you have muddled the mint, sugar and lime together. Muddle the
blueberries enough to release the juice and break apart the blueberries.
Then, continue with the recipe above. Cheers!
