Well, here we are, smack dab in the thick of summer, my friends! As I write this, most of the country is under a nightmarish heat wave which, on the one hand, it’s summer so it comes with the territory. But on the other hand it’s completely sucking my soul dry! Time to recharge with a deliciously refreshing cocktail and this Mojito Margarita is just the thing to see you through the rest of this sweltering season.
This Mojito Margarita is the mojito made with tequila you’ve been dreaming about your whole life or at least since you read the title of this post.
- 5 mint leaves plus more for garnishing
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
- 1 ounce simple syrup plus more to rim the glass
- 2 ounces tequila
- 3 ounces club soda
- kosher salt (optional)
- lime wedge for garnishing
Optional: Coat the rim of the glass with simple syrup and dip in kosher salt.
In the bottom of a tumbler, muddle mint leaves, lime juice, and simple syrup.
Add in the tequila, add ice, and top with club soda. Give it a gentle stir.
