Peach Mojito

Peaches are one of my favorite summer fruits… and rum is one of my favorite liquors.

Peach Mojito

So it didn’t take me long to figure out that peaches + rum = Peach Mojitos:-)

Peach Mojito

It’s actually not that difficult to prepare.  You’ll need a muddler to muddle the peaches and mint.  If you don’t have a muddler, you can use the back of a wooden spoon to mash it all together.  Muddle a few mint leaves with lime juice, a peeled peach, mint and sugar.  Add some white rum… pour in a glass over ice… then finish it off with club soda.

Garnish with a fresh slice of peach and mint sprig, if desired.

Then drink up (responsibly, of course!).  Cheers!
