Blood orange mojitos

January 19, 2014
It's blood orange season, a nugget of information we would not know had we not stumbled upon this Smitten Kitchen recipe last year and subsequently polished off our very first blood orange cocktails. Fast forward to this week, when I am shopping for my (wildly successful first attempt at) chicken pho, and spot none other than blood oranges. I bring them home of course and we recreate last year's blood orange margaritas. We then branch out on our own to make the most delicious cocktails we've enjoyed in months: blood orange mojitos. Behold.

Blood orange mojitos
Serves two

1/2 cup blood orange juice
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons simple syrup
6 tablespoons rum
Leaves from several mint sprigs

Muddle mint with rum. Add remaining ingredients. Mix and pour over ice.

Drinks in hand, play the longest game ever of left-handed jenga.

  1. looks absolutely loverly! Just wandered over from Smitten Kitchen - have some nice rum but alas, alack - no blood oranges - just the regular kind. And of course no mint. Maybe I'll just sip some rum on its own. Living in Labrador means making do with what you do have... now - my Blondies are ready.
