Tips For Making The Perfect Mojito
This Blood Orange mojito recipe is so simple and easy to toss together that you don’t need many tips.
Firstly, I LOVE using fresh lime juice in my mojitos but if you don’t have any on hand you can use bottled juices too.
Muddling your mint is the essential step in this cocktail (and any mojito) so don’t rush.
Muddling helps release the mint oil from the leaves and gives you the wonderful flavor.
