Elderflower Mojito  

As prepared by Michelle P

On one hand, the Mojito cocktail is kind of perfect as-is.

On the other hand, we’ve all “been there and done that” with the classic Cuban highball.  At any rate, a little shaking up wouldn’t hurt.  Fruit is a natural, and welcome, addition to the Mojito, but I was looking for something a little more unusual – a little more fun – a little more Summertime in a Glass. I was so pleased to run across this recipe for the Elderflower Mojito, which adds a little elderflower liqueur to the standard components of rum, fresh lime juice, and lots of fresh mint.

Elderflower liqueur, if you are not familiar, is a sweet, slightly floral taste, in a pear flavored base.  In short, it tastes like summertime, or heaven.  Or Summertime in Heaven.  In short, very good!

Mojitos are so easy to make.  The key component is lots of fresh mint!  Just muddle (lightly crush) the mint with the rum, add fresh lime juice, elderflower liqueur and simple syrup, stir, and pour into an ice-filled highball glass.

Edible flowers make a perfect garnish for this cocktail.  (Many supermarkets carry these in the produce section, with the fresh herbs.)  Just layer a few blooms with the ice cubes .
