I used to work as a bartender and learned so many different cocktail combinations. Even though I rarely drink, this is one of my favorite springtime cocktails. When made right it has a beautiful presentation and easily impresses your guests with little effort.

This mojito will be fantastic at any summer party. It's slightly sweet, tangy and very refreshing thanks to the fresh mint. You taste the rum in this adult beverage, but it's not overpowering. A great cocktail for warmer nights. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

    lime, cut into wedges
  • 1 1/2 oz
    clear rum
  • 1/2 c
    cherry or black cherry juice
  • 1/2 c
    sparkling water (or Sprite)

  • ·
    cherries, pitted (garnish)

How to Make Cherry Lime Mojito

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather ingredients.
  2. Place the mint and lime wedges in a glass and using a wooden spoon "muddle" together.
  3. Add cherry juice to the glass.
  4. Add sparkling water (or Sprite if you want it to be super sweet). Put ice in the glass.
  5. Add clear rum and give a gentle stir or two.
  6. Garnish with sliced lime, a cherry or two and a few mint leaves for an elegant presentation.
  7. It is possible to increase the ingredients on this drink and make them in a pitcher, but I highly recommend against it. The flavor combinations don't come out quite right poured compared to individually mixed.
