Making a Hibiscus Mojito

Let’s get mixin’! Get out a nice tall glass, you’ll fill most of it up with ice and club soda, so don’t worry!

Place your mint along with a teaspoon of agave syrup (more if sweeter drink is desired) or equal amount of sugar in the bottom of the glass and muddle it; gently now, you don’t want to release the bitter part of the mint.

Keeping the mint in the bottom of the glass, pour in rum and lime juice, gently stir with muddler.

No Muddler? Simply use the handle of a heavy wooden spoon. Do you have one of these mini measuring cups! My fave!

Pour in your club soda, I love these all-natural Qdrinks Club Soda’s! They are so delicious, fresh, ultra-carbonated and the perfect cocktail size!
