Friday Night Cocktails: Orange Mojito
Jul 06, 2012 05:01PM ● Published by Anonymous
I love making variations on traditional cocktails, such as adding oranges to the classic mojito. For a truly refreshing cocktail, make sure to use the good orange juice -- I'm a fan of Simply Orange -- or even squeeze it yourself.
5 mint leaves
1 ounce fresh-squeezed orange juice
1 ounces fresh lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ½ ounces rum
½ ounce orange liqueur
Orange slices for garnish
In a glass, muddle the mint leaves with the orange juice, lime juice, and simple syrup. Add the rum and orange liqueur. Top with ice and a splash of soda water. Stir well, top with additional mint leaves and an orange slice.
