I write this as I'm sitting on my best friend's couch, and have to laugh, because she is really the one who taught me how to make a cocktail. Before, I just figured only bartenders could come up with boozy recipe - but she introduced me to all the ways of cocktail making.
Turns out though, anyone can make a cocktail. Imagine that! You can make a cocktail with pretty much anything - a little sweet, a little sour, some fresh fruit, and your favorite libation, you really can't go wrong.
Katie and I spent a summer drinking nothing but mojitos - we mastered the art, and by the end of the summer we were drinking anything and everything with mint and rum.
This recipe subs out
- 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar (more if you prefer a sweet cocktail)
- 3-4 peaches, very ripe
- 1 cup light rum
oz(approximate) soda water
- Large handful of mint
Muddle 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar with mint & sliced peaches until the sugar dissolves. Add in rum and muddle until thoroughly combined.
Top with crushed ice and club soda. If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, stir in a bit more sugar until dissolved.
