MOJITO SLUSHIES

MAKES 12 DRINKS (2 batches of 6)

Prep Time:  40 minutes | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 6 hours (includes freezing time)

These easy, amazing drinks are stealthily alcoholic, so be careful!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups fresh lime juice (from 12 to 16 limes)
  • 2 cups Fresh Mint Simple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Ice
  • 24 ounces white rum (or 24 ounces lemonade for a mocktail)
  • Mint sprigs, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

1. In a pitcher or large glass liquid measuring cup, thoroughly mix the lime juice, simple syrup, and water. Pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze completely, at least 6 hours.

2. To make a batch of 6 mojito slushies, count out half the frozen mint-lime cubes and put them in a blender. Add about two-thirds the amount of regular ice cubes as mint-lime cubes, then pour in 12 ounces of the rum or lemonade and blend until smooth.

3. Divide the slushies among six glasses and garnish each with a mint sprig before serving. Blend the second batch of slushies just before serving them so they don’t melt!
