I'm really branching out here and I have to admit, I'm a bit proud of myself. Pineapple-Lime Mojitos? No hay problema! (problemo is incorrect Spanish by the way) I found this recipe on Food Network and I like how Ingrid Hoffman incorporated pineapple with the mojito to give it a tropical kick. She also suggests using sugar cane as a stirrer. If I could get my hands on sugar cane during the summer months, I'll make sure to make these mojitos again to have an excuse to use them.
a bunch of mint leaves (around 24)
8 tablespoons of sugar
2 limes quartered
1 cup of rum
2 small 6 oz cans of pineapple juice
1-1/4 cup of soda water
4 pineapple rings (I used canned)
Makes 4 mojitos
In the bottom of a pitcher, add your mint leaves, sugar and lime sections. Mash with a wooden spoon and swirl. Add the rum, pineapple juice and soda water and stir. Add ice cubes to four medium-sized glasses. Add a lime section to each glass. Remove the extras from the pitcher. Pour mixture into glasses. Break into each pineapple ring and hang each on the rim of the glass. Serve and drink responsibly.
