Blind Pig Mojitos

Every summer we love to make a pitcher of yummy mojitos.  We first shared our rum mojito recipe with you in our Zaya Rum Mojito post and last summer we introduced you to an Italian Mojito .  We were looking through our stack of recipes and Rhonda realized that we have never shared our favorite mojito recipe on the blog.

We like Blind Pig Mojitos because a pitcher can be whipped up easily.  Because the recipe calls for tequila over rum, these mojitos are a little lighter than the typical mojito recipes .  Try out this refreshing twist on a summer classic and let us know what you think.

To make the Blind Pig Mojito you will need to make a cup of mint infused simple syrup. For the simple syrup boil a cup of water with 3/4 cups of sugar.  Stir until the sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat and add in 1 cup of fresh mint sprigs to steep for 2 hours.  Strain the simple syrup and it is ready to use.

Other ingredients that you need for this delightful libation are lemon-lime soft drink, fresh lime juice, blanco tequila, fresh mint sprigs and lime slices for garnish.  If you like to lighten the calorie load, use a diet version of your favorite lemon-lime soda.  You can also make your simple syrup with Stevia for a lo-cal version.
