Christmas Cocktail #7- Kumquat & Meyer Lemon Mojito

We know that YOU know that we LOVE mojitos!  And, yes, we found a way to sneak one into The 12 Days of Christmas Cocktails!  What can we say?  Mojitos are what kicked off this whole crazy Fashionably Bombed adventure!  And boy have we come a long way!  Remember this? And this? And, who can forget, this?  WOW!  That was painful to watch (minus the Chia part-that was fun!)  We were so serious back then!

Well this mojito is different!  Instead of limes, we're using kumquats and Meyer lemons which are currently growing all over the place here in California.  They are nicely complimented by the fresh ginger and mint.

Is your mouth watering yet???

Tropical vacation??? NAH!  All you need are a couple of these babies!

Kumquat & Meyer Lemon Mojito

10 mint leaves
4 kumquats
2 ounces white rum
1½ ounces freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice
2 tablespoons sugar
¼ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
Club soda to top off
Crushed ice

Slice kumquats into rounds and add to a highball glass.  Next add lemon juice, sugar, mint leaves and ginger and muddle ingredients together. If you don’t have a muddler, you can use any flat utensil with a handle, such as a spoon.  Next add white rum and stir. Add crushed ice and top off with club soda.

Get crazy, get wild, get crazy, get wild and garnish with a stacked kumquat and mint cocktail skewer!
