Mint Mojito Sugar

Image

I bought a cute little mint plant a few months back and it’s turned into a monster!! What’s a gal to do  when she’s stuck with a bumper crop of mint leaves?

Make Fresh Mint Mojitos, naturally!

I thought I could give the Mojitos an extra minty jolt by letting the sugar hang out with the fresh mint leaves for a couple days! I should add that I am not a huge sugar person…. I considered using an alternative, but was unsure about how it would turn out with anything else.

Start by pouring a small bit of sugar into a mason jar.

Add a few mint leaves and repeat until you have your desired amount.

Easy, right? Doesn’t anything look pretty in a mason jar?

I’ll be whipping up Mojitos after the sugar and leaves get to know each other for a few days… I’m not sold on any particular recipe yet, so feel free to shout out some suggestions!

    Put two tablespoons of your sugar in the bottom of a tall glass and add the juice of half a lime and a few mint leaves (you shouldn’t need much since you have your fabulous new sugar!). Muddle it around until it smells delicious. Add a shot (or two of rum), ice and club soda to taste! Enjoy!
