Lemon Ginger Mojito | The refreshing flavors of lemon, ginger, and mint in a delicious mojito! Or make the classic with my traditional mojito recipe.
There’s this restaurant in Milwaukee, that I loooooove. It’s called Cubanitas, and it has the most delicious Cuban food.
Empanadas, ham coquettes, banana chips with guacamole, and a cuban sandwich that is to die for. I mean, after you eat it, you kind of think to yourself, “Okay. I’m good. My life is complete.”
As good as all their food is, their Mojito is out of this world. It is just the absolute perfect combination of mint, rum, sugar, and lime. And they shove a sugar cane stick in there that kind of makes all your dreams come true.
Right next to Cubanitas is a sushi restaurant. And more than once, we have gone ahead and had a few too many mojitos at Cubanitas, and then walked over to have some sushi.
One of my favorite things about getting sushi (besides the actual sushi) is the pickled ginger that comes on the side. I might be a weirdo, but it is literally making my mouth water as I type this.
So this drink is like an homage to that experience (that makes me sound a real snob, huh?). Mojitos followed by pickled ginger.
If you love ginger, you are going to want to double the amount I call for. I looooove ginger, but I know that not everyone does. The ginger, the mint, and the lemon all together is such a wonderful flavor combination.
And once you’ve made your lemon simple syrup (which is like a liquid lemon drop and needs to be used in about three hundred additional recipes) this drink comes together quicker than you can yell, “Pull up a lawn chair and grab my favorite cooking magazine!”
