It’s week 2 of the summer cocktail series and you will be glad you came back for more. I am sharing a ginger beer mojito, which combines a few of my favorite summer flavors, plus 9 other refreshing cocktails you are going to want to try this summer. Read on for all the details.
My favorite drink, next to a good glass of cabernet, is a moscow mule. I’ll have to share my go to recipe with you all very soon. I like them over ice in a copper mug for authenticity. I wanted to use ginger beer in this week’s cocktail as well as some herbs that are flourishing in my tiered planter. I tried my hand at a ginger beer mojito and it came out perfect! It blends refreshing citrus, spicy ginger and cool mint. I was not disappointed and in fact have had a few this past week since first creating it.
How to make a ginger beer mojito
I came across this ginger beer a few months back and it has quickly become my favorite mixer. It’s a bit sweet, but I like the flavor and how good it tastes with fresh lime.
I also invested in the muddler you see in the video recently, it was inexpensive from Amazon and works well. It’s dishwasher safe and the ends won’t scratch any of your glassware.
