Yesterday my friend Courtney came into town with her baby girl and spent the night at my house. We stayed up late (well, late for women who have kids who are awake at 6:00 in the morning) talking and catching up, just the girls. It had been another brutally hot day, so I mixed us up a pitcher of these Frozen Cherry Mojitos to sip on. They were just what the doctor ordered. Today, I have to return her to her family. I hope she goes back to them more relaxed and refreshed and gets her fanny back to North Carolina permanently soon. Love ya girl!
Frozen Cherry Mojitos
2 1/2 cups fresh cherries, pitted
Juice of 2 limes (about 1/3 cup)
1 cup crushed ice
2 Tb sugar
1 dozen fresh mint leaves
3/4 cup rum (or leave virgin if preferred)
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Makes 1 pitcher.
- The stick off the top is a sugar cane garnish. Completely unnecessary but since my well-intentioned husband paid $4 for them I thought I'd use them.
