For Halloween, this cocktail has been nicknamed the "Boojito"... perfect for your Halloween bash!
The recipe features Blood Orange Italian Soda which you can get at Target or Whole Foods. This is easier to find than blood oranges or blood orange juice. It's a really refreshing spin on the mojito- I actually like it better!
BLOOD ORANGE MOJITO
3 cups Blood Orange Italian Sparkling Soda
3 cups light rum
3 cups ice cubes
1 large bunch of mint leaves, no stems (about 40 leaves)
2 limes sliced very thin (one is for garnish)
In a pitcher, add mint, lime slices, and one cup of the ice. Muddle together to slightly bruise the mint and release the juice from the lime. Add the remaining ice, the soda, and the rum. Stir and pour!
*You do not need sugar (as you would in a standard mojito) unless you are using the actual fruit or fruit juice instead of the Italian sparkling soda. If that is the case, use about one teaspoon raw sugar per drink and muddle with the mint and lime.
