Mojitarita, a cross between a Mojito and Margarita

The Mojitarita cocktail is a cross between the Mojito and the Margarita. It blends mint and lime with silver tequila instead of rum, and the taste is incredibly refreshing – perfect for a hot summer’s day.

The tequila adds a surprising flavor kick compared to rum. If you took a Mojito and swapped out the rum for tequila, you’d get a less sweet drink – with the Mojito not being all that sweet to begin with.

So this recipe adds a little agave syrup for sweetness. The flavor of this drink is a little more citrus than the Mojito, and the taste of cactus comes through clearly.

Make sure you pick a good, drinkable tequila that you like the flavor of.

Be sure to muddle the mint for a good little while, to bring out the maximum taste. The longer you muddle, the more mint flavor you’ll get.

The lime taste is also strong in this drink, but the mint balances them both out. This is a great drink for cooling off on a hot day, or enjoying by the pool.

If you love Mojitos, but occasionally want a little change from them, this drink makes a great alternative. This is also a nice alternative to a Margarita – it basically swaps the orange liqueur for mint.

If that sounds like a treat, it’s definitely worth a try.
