I’m definitely not Irish. I’m mostly a Swedish girl at heart- big bones, big appetite, a bit on the stubborn side, and many distant relatives in Minnesota. My husband is very Irish though, and when St. Paddy’s Day rolls around… he’s always hoping I’ll whip up some special “Irish” things. I couldn’t resist mixing this up for my husband after a tip from Benjamin Steakhouse on seasonal cocktails.

How to make an Irish Mojito:

The complete, printable recipe is at the end of this post.

Squeeze the lime into a cocktail shaker and add the mint leaves. Muddle together using a muddler or the end of a wooden spoon. Add the Bacardi, sugar and a handful of ice. Place lid on shaker and shake away.
 
Strain the mixture into a glass (martini glass suggested). Top each cocktail off with a splash of club soda and a drizzle of Creme de Menthe (which will sink to the bottom). Add a lime wedge for garnish, and serve.

So if you’re looking for a festive adult beverage to make that is green, set aside the green beer and make these Irish Mojitos instead. They really are delicious.
