When the weather gets warm I trade in snuggling on the couch with a blanket and a glass of wine, for sitting outside on the deck sipping a fruity drink. Ok, I don’t really trade in that glass of wine, BUT I am much more inclined to try something different, especially if it involves fresh fruit.

My current favorite is this Blood Orange Mojito. Doesn’t it just look like a little bit of sunshine in a glass? I like mojitos before I tried this one but this one blows the traditional one out of the water. I love the flavor of the blood orange juice mixed with the mint and lime. It’s so bright and refreshing, it just makes the perfect summer drink.

It’s pretty darn easy to make too. You just pour your blood orange juice, lime juice, and simple syrup into a glass, and then you toss in some mint leaves and use your muddler to smash them. This bruises the leaves and lets the mint flavor out. I feel like mint is what makes a mojito special. I mean there are lots of drinks out there with citrus juices and rum, but the crushed mint mixed with those two makes it something totally unique.

Looks like 2016 is going to be the summer of the mojito for me! Or maybe it will be the summer of the blood orange. I’m thinking that gorgeous red citrus fruit might make an awesome margarita too…
