I was taking stock of my container herb garden a few weeks ago to see what I needed to replant, and was happy that my mint was coming back quite nicely. That’s a good thing, because my main use for it is in mojitos, one of my favorite summertime drinks. Now I just needed to decide what new flavor of mojito I was going to make — last year it was pineapple (see my post Mojito Mojo for the recipe) and the year before it was blood orange, both of which are excellent.
I decided to go with a melon mojito since I have almost a full bottle of Midori liqueur. Then I thought I’d add some cucumber as well — I love the taste of melon and cucumber together. The result? A cool, refreshing and pretty green cocktail that is not too sweet. Kermit would love it!
