"Mojito's made cool and easy. Very nice on a hot summer night!!" — Cristionas

1 (6 ounce) can
frozen limeade concentrate
8 (1.5 fluid ounce) jiggers
fresh mint leaves
Very tasty and much easier to make than the traditional mojito. I put the mint in the blender first and had no problems with needing to strain the leaves - they became miniscule fragments! These are great when it's hot outside - refreshing, sweet, and powerful!
I may have done something wrong (given the number of really positive reviews), but the recipe calls for a 6 oz can of frozen limeade concentrate. Because the typical frozen limeade concentrate can is 12 oz, I doubled the rum from 8 to 16 (1.5 fluid oz each: so 24 fluid oz total) which turned out to be WAY too much rum. Because it wasn't really drinkable, I put it in the freezer and am going to blend it all again with another can of limeade.
My family has been using a slight variation on this recipe (although we call it a Mint Daiquiri) for over three decades: 6 oz. each limeade & rum, spoonful of sugar & ice, all pulsed many, many times in the blender to ensure creamy smoothness. Can't be beat on hot summer evenings. Always a crowd pleaser. Omit the mint, and sub tequila for the rum and you have an equally pleasing margarita.
A jigger is usually 1.5 ounces. So if this calls for 8 jiggers that is 12 ounces (or two six ounce juice cans) of rum. Adjust to your taste.
This is a great recipe! I also just put the mint in the blender with everything else...no problem. I put the leftovers (when there are some) in a bowl in the freezer. Then all I have to do is scoop out some the next time!
I don't know why but somehow did'nt taste very good. The mint leaves had to be strained perhaps.
This recipe was AWESOME!!! It has now become my favorite summertime (or anytime) drink!!! Very refreshing!! I am not a mint fan, but it's wonderful in this recipe!! A+++++
These are wonderful! Nice and refreshing on hot days and is much easier to prepare than regular mojito's when serving a large group.
