Mayan Chocolate Mojito

Mayan Chocolate Mojito

Its not a huge secret that most everyone here at Madtini loves Mojitos, the blast of freshness from mint leaves will leave anyone’s taste bugs craving more. We’ve made Mojitos with a hint of maple syrup,  as well as pineapple and peppercorns.

We’re always on the look out for new ideas for Mojitos, and we stumbled upon a listing this for a Mayan Chocolate Mojito created by the Karisma Hotels Resorts in the Riviera Maya in Mexico. If you’re a chocolate lover you’ll love the combination of fresh mint, lime and lush chocolate.

Cheers and happy lounging

Ingredients

3/4 oz simple syrup
1 ½ oz white creme de cacao
½ oz white rum
4 fresh mint leaves
1/2 lime

Preparation

Muddle the lime pieces, simple syrup and mint leaves in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Strain into an cocktail glass field with ice. Add the creme de cacao, top with rum and garnish with a sprig of mint.
