Fresh Orange Mojito

Prep Time: 4 mins

Difficulty: Easy

Yield: 1 serving

Rating: (0)


2 teaspoons sugar
2 1/2 ounces white rum
1/2 orange, cut into 3 wedges
1/2 lime, cut into 3 wedges
1 or 2 sprigs fresh mint
1 cup crushed ice


Put the oranges, limes, sugar, and mint in a large rocks glass. Muddle the leaves and citrus by pressing them with a pestle or a wooden spoon until juicy and fragrant. Add the rum and ice. Cover with a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously, or stir, until combined and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, by the time the shaker mists up the drink is ready.) Serve.
