These Apple Cider Mojitos are the perfect cocktail to sip on transitioning from summer to fall!
Fall is approaching, guys! And I cannot explain how excited I am for it. Being pregnant during this heat has been b-a-ruuuu-t-al. Funny that I'm posting an apple cider mojito recipe while pregnant, huh? Ha! I have to be prepared, ya know? Just kidding. And don't worry, I didn't test these myself - although, it was hard notto.Mojitos are one of my favorite cocktails to make so I took my favorite basic recipe, fall-ified it up and had a few of my trusted taste-testers try them out for me. Nothing but rave reviews! These mojitos are the epitome of fall in a glass and I cannot waaiiiiit to have one myself! Two more weeks to go and this belly will be gone and I can whip these up for myself.
To make this recipe, you'll just need a few ingredients. I like to use golden rum in recipes like this because I feel like it lends a deeper flavor than just regular rum. You'll muddle together some rum, mint leaves, lime juice and sugar in the bottom of a tall glass. Then you'll add the ice, apple slices, lime wedges and pour in the apple cider to the tippy top. Give it a good stir and you're good to go! The perfect fall inspired twist on the classic minty cocktail.
