Satsuma Mojitos

New Orleans is calling lately.

First we enjoyed Sazeracs at a bar downtown. They were perfectly balanced and after my first one, I was ready to book a ticket to New Orleans ASAP!

Then this weekend, I pulled out an old recipe for Satsuma Mojitos and saw that it is from Cochon in New Orleans.

These mojitos are light, refreshing, citrusy and a perfect way to capture some of the citrusy sun and infuse these dreary winter evenings. Actually, it's easy to forget that there's even alcohol in these.

Energy of the sun!

Satsuma Mojito

Makes 2 drinks

1 lime, halved
3 Satsumas, halved
4 springs fresh mint
1/2 cup light rum
2 tablespoons simple syrup
1/2 cup club soda

Squeeze the the juice from the lime into a shaker. Remove the fruit from the Satsuma rinds and place in shaker. Tear up the leaves from 2 springs of mint and place in shaker. Muddle.

Add 1/2 cup rum, 2 tablespoons simple syrup and ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into two glasses filled with ice. Top each glass with 2 ounces (1/4 cup) club soda.

Garnish each glass with a sprig of mint.

    1. I normally don't drink much rum, especially in the winter, but these are so fab. dangerous though because you can't taste the alcohol at all.
