Cucumber Melon Balsamic Mojito Recipe by New Canaan Olive Oil
Everyone knows that balsamic is great to add a burst of flavor to your favorite dish, but it is a little known fact that they can also make a great flavor for mixed drinks! My husband and I personally love Mojitos and adding our Cucumber Melon Balsamic (or try it with Lemongrass Mint Balsamic) just gives it an extra fresh, summery flavor.
- Fresh Mint Leaves
- Juice of 1 Lime
- 1 tablespoon simple syrup
- 2 oz light (white) rum
- 1 tablespoon NCOO Cucumber Melon Balsamic
- Club Soda
- Organic cane sugar to garnish the rim of the glass
Moisten the edge of the rim of the glass. Dip it in the sugar so that the sugar sticks to the rim.
In a cocktail shaker, add the mint, simple syrup, lime juice and Cucumber Melon Balsamic. Muddle until the mint is broken up to release the flavor. Fill the glass with ice cubes, pour in the rum and the muddled mixture, then top with club soda. Finish off with a sprig of mint. Stir well and enjoy!
