Here’s what you’ll need for this Peeps Cocktail:

  • Lemon Rum
  • Lime Juice

Of course, the classic mojito uses plain white rum but in this version we decided to use Bacardi Limon. 

We have using this fun version of regular rum in cocktails because it is made with all natural flavours. 

More variations: If you don’t have lemon rum, you can use plain white rum and add an extra squirt of lemon juice to your cocktail. 

You can also use plain simple syrup instead of the rosemary one.
