Time For A Dirty Mojito

We’ve been making mojitos for a month or so now at the bar where I work (it’s a seasonal treat here in Western New York).

Everyone always loves a simple twist on traditional cocktails, so we put this on our chalkboard yesterday:

To make a “Dirty Mojito” we just swap out spiced or black rum for the regular rum which goes into a mojito. Most times I make them with one pour Kraken and one pour Myers.

Limited Edition Cocktail: Choco-Strawberry Mojito

A “Limited Edition Cocktail” is something that can only be made with a certain ingredient that’s only available for a short time.

Here in this case, the “limited” ingredient is a chocolate mint that we only had a short while this past summer at my restaurant.

Big This Summer: Watermelon Mojito

People go crazy for this drink each spring and summer, whenever we first get fresh watermelon in.

It started a few years back, when the bar where I work started mixing Bacardi Dragon Berry into mojitos and serving them with strawberries. Then came the watermelon, which people sometimes seem to fiend for. We get asked about it all year round:
