Friday 5 o’Clock Cocktail – Mint Daiquiri

Mint DaiquiriMinty and sweet – that’s what we’re looking forward to this evening. The perfect drink to sip as you gaze out at your yard and think about all that mowing you are going to be doing tomorrow morning. Yeah, it’s spring alright. The yard work, the pollen, the Rum drinks!

Here’s how to make a Mint Daiquiri:

  • 2 oz of Light Rum
  • 1/4 oz of Triple Sec (or another kind of Orange Liquour)
  • 4 Mint Leaves
  • 1/2 oz Lime Juice
  • 1 tsp Powdered Sugar
  • 1 cup of ice

Add all ingredients into a blender and blend it until it’s smooth. Keep in mind a couple of tips:

  1. Try and get as much of the stems off the mint leaves as possible. They can make the drink a little bitter. It doesn’t hurt to use a knife to cut the spines out of the leaves.
  2. Make sure you blend it enough to really pulverize those mint leaves down so that they are just specks of green in the drink. If you don’t blend them enough they will get little green flakes caught in your teeth, and that isn’t cute.
