Good News! Mojitos don’t have to end just because summer is over! This version is made with vodka but you can use rum if you’d like. Apple juice and especially apple cider are fall favorites in my house so this was a good fit for us.
Mojitos have become one of my favorite mixed drinks. Mostly because I get to use spearmint which is one of my favorite flavors. It grows like crazy in my garden and once you have one plant, you have a lifetime supply. In fact, it does so well here that we’ve had to move it to a container garden because it was absolutely was taking over my herb garden.
