The Mother-in-Law Mojito – A friend of mine in Tampa coined the name of this otherwise traditional mojito.

Mother-in-Law Mojito. What Cuban/Florida gathering is complete without a rum cocktail.

Here’s an easy recipe to keep the in-laws happy while you cook.


Organic Mother-in-Law Mojito
Bag of Limes
One bunch of fresh mint
White Organic Confectioner’s Sugar
Good white organic rum
Plenty of ice


Muddle a TB or two (if you like it more tart)  of fresh-squeed lime juice with several mint leaves to release the flavors. Don’t cut them first. Ask your guest how sweet they want it and add 2-4 heaping tsp. of sugar. More after tasting, if they wish. Add those ingredients to a highball glass along with plenty of  crushed ice. Pour a shot of rum over it. Finish off with sparkling water (lime flavored, if you wish). Garnish with a sprig of mint.
