With all the heat in St Louis, I think it's time to cheers to one of my favorite drinks, a Pomegranate Mojito.
The Pomegranate Mojito is a rum based drink with a little sugar, lime juice, fresh mint leaves, and Pom juice. Pom juice can be expensive, but you only need a small bottle for these. Pm juice can be found in the fresh juice section of your market.
Here's an amazing recipe I got from www.recipegirl.com. It is made for two.
1 Tbs granulated sugar (superfine sugar mixes in more quickly)
1 Tbs fresh lime juice
10 mint leaves
6 Tbs white rum
¼ cup pomegranate juice
soda water and 2 additional mint leaves
1. Combine sugar, lime juice, and mint leaves in a tall glass; mash leaves with the back of a spoon. Mix in rum and Pom juice.
2. Fill two martini glasses with ice. Divide mixed mojitos between the two glasses. Top with a splash of soda water, and garnish with an additional mint leaf.
