Hi everyone! Summer is almost here! It has been really hot lately here in North Carolina so over the weekend I made some refreshing chocolate mint mojitos to sip on while I relaxed. I'm so excited to share them with you here on the blog because it has been so long since I've put a mixed drink recipe up so I hope you enjoy it!
They really hit the spot and will of course be perfect for enjoying over this Memorial Day weekend coming up! I hope you have a fabulous holiday!
I put my own spin on this basic recipe and used some of my chocolate mint herbs that I'm growing on my patio. They added a delicious touch to this classic cocktail. I love the flavor and combination paired with the rum, bubbly club soda, and cold ice. Soooo refreshing and tangy! Whoo!
I purchased the Bonnie Plants Chocolate Mint Herbs at Lowe's in the garden center for just a few bucks. I planted a small little bundle in early Spring and it has grown a ton. It's huge and taking over my herbs planter. Mint will get crazy so if you purchase it, seriously use it! With full sun, water, occasional miracle grow, and love, these will thrive and produce a lot of mint leaves that you can harvest and enjoy all year long.
Aren't they beautiful!? They smell incredible! Enjoy this cocktail recipe below!
