Spring Cocktail Party: Lemonade and Mojitos
We’re one week into spring. It’s time for spring cocktails. Try these two simple and refreshing cocktails to toast to the start of the new season - and your own vernal renaissance.
For those who love lemonade, mix-up the Frost Lemonade for a citrus zing.
Or try adding a twist to the classic mojito recipe by using an aged rum like Ron Abuelo 7 Años (instead of silver rum) for a "Dirty" Mojito (a recipe that hails from Nobu Miami Beach).
1 oz Ron Abuelo 7 Años
2 oz Soda Water
1/2 oz Lime Juice
6-7 Mint Leaves
1 teaspoon Sugar
Crush mint leaves with lime juice and sugar in a shaker.
Add rum and ice, shake and pour into a glass.
Top with soda water and garnish with mint.
