Summer is Almost Here and Siren Surf Adventures is Getting Ready to Celebrate with Raspberry Mojitos
Here's what you'll need:
Start with a good quality silver rum. Bacardi is the OG. But I also love picking up different rums from my travels in Central America and the Caribbean and giving those a try.
Lots of fresh mint straight from the garden. (Mint is easy to grow and will take over. It is a good idea to plant it in it's own pot)
Fresh Key Limes. Not Persian Limes, Key Limes. They have way more juice and are sweeter.
Sugar in the raw or simple syrup. (You can make your own simple syrup at home- just equal parts sugar and water, bring to a boil then cool)
Soda water (or Sprite if you like a little sweeter drink)
In a classic mojito glass muddle together the juice of 2 limes with the rind, 2 tablespoons sugar or a shot of simple syrup, 3 or 4 sprigs of mint, and 3 or 4 raspberries.
Add lots of ice
Pour 2 shots of rum
Shake or stir together then top with a splash of soda water
Now go for an afternoon stand up paddle, come home and fire up the grill while you sip your summer rasberry mojito! Enjoy!
