I’ve said before that mojitos are my drink of choice, and this is even truer for today’s cocktail. I mean, I practically bought every apricot in the store so I could keep making them. That’s right! Today, I’m excited to share how to make an apricot mojito with Bacardi Superior, fresh mint and homemade simple syrup. I think you know what I’ll be drinking for the remainder of the summer!
Scroll down for the full recipe card! ??
I use rum more than any other alcohol in our house because I feel that it goes with the most flavors and drinks. We even use it in place of tequila most of the time because we generally prefer rum and always keep it in the house. It’s great with fruits, sodas, punches, you name it. For Andrew’s birthday next week, I’ll probably even use it to make a peach rum punch because that sounds like the best, most summery drink I could possible make for a party.
In the meantime, I’ll settle for several mojitos to cool me down during the crazy heat here in SoCal, at least while I can keep my mint plant alive. I now have three and they seem to alternate between life and death because I wasn’t blessed with a green thumb. No matter how hard I try, the poor things barely get by, but I need to keep the mint growing in order to keep the mojitos comin’!
