Ingredients in the Mojito Cocktail
- 6 Mint leaves
- .75 oz Simple syrup (one part water, one part sugar)
- .75 oz Fresh lime juice
- 1.5 oz White rum
- 1.5 oz Club soda
Into the blender goes the cubed pineapple flesh and as much fresh mint as you prefer. I actually ended up using the entire package you see here because this made a massive amount of juice.
Into the juicer goes the pineapple core. Never throw away those pineapple cores. They contain a concentrated amount of cancer fighting properties and you want those in your bloodstream!!!
Next up was the fresh, organic lime. I choose organic limes so I can juice the entire thing, skin and all. It just makes the lime flavor over the top when you include a little of the skin too. I put a few slices of the lime through the juicer with the pineapple core and hand juiced the other half of the lime.
Added the juice of the lime and ice to the blender full of pineapple cubes and mint. Blend until creamy and frothy.
Here is the blended juice that still contains all of the pulp from the pineapple.
My Pineapple Mojito (alcohol free, sugar free)
To remove the top of the pineapple simply twist it off, do not cut it off. You will be left with this:
Then you want to peel off all of the little bottom leaves to reveal the stems point as seen above.
+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for the opportunity to watch, with my children, this little red-headed woodpecker eat off our Christmas Palm. I bought two of these palms years ago from Edison's garden. Yes, I mean Thomas Edison. His vacation home is here and we use to go on weekly field trips there for homeschool science classes.
