Cocktail O’Clock: Memorial Day Mojito



This new drink from Tony Abou-Ganim, The Modern Mixologist takes one of our favorite cocktails, the mojito, and amps it up with one of our favorite cocktail add-ons: ginger. Why didn’t we think of that before?

 Memorial Day  Mojito


1 1/2 oz Shellback Spiced rum
1 oz Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
12-14 Fresh Mint Leaves
1 oz Ginger Syrup
4 slices of Mandarin or Clementine
2 oz Chilled Soda Water


In a highball glass, lightly muddle lime juice, ginger syrup, sliced mandarin and mint leaves.

Add crushed ice and rum.

Stir until outside of glass begins to frost.

Top with chilled soda water.

Garnish with mint sprig.

    Before taking the first sip, raise the glass in memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to secure the freedoms we hold dear.
