Pineapple Mojitos




After last week's giveaway*, I've been dying to finally try one of the recipes from Cook Yourself Thin.  Of course, I picked everyone's favorite, the Pineapple Mojitos!

I can't believe how good these were!  I let Ryan have one to taste, but after that I wouldn't even share!  They were just the right blend of fresh, sweet and sour.  Plus, they were really easy.  I'm shaing the recipe below...you're going to thank me for this one!




1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
2 limes cut into wedges
1 cup white rum
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup club soda

1.  Using a wooden spoon, gently crush the mint leaves, brown sugar and lime wedges at the bottom of a pitcher to release juices and dissolve the sugar.  (You can add 1 tablespoon very hot water to dissolve the sugar if necessary.)
 2.  Add pineapple juice, rum and club soda.  Stir until blended.
3.  Add ice to chill.  Serve cold straight up (or over ice).  Garnish with lime or mint, if desired.


*Rebecca, have you received your cookbook yet?  Just checking.  You must make this recipe!
