Apple Mojito
  • fresh mint (about 10 to 15 leaves)
  • ice cubes
  • simple syrup (a splash, to taste)
  • lemon juice (a splash, to taste)
  • ¼ cup apple juice
  • ⅓ cup rum (dark or white)
  • 4 green apple slices (to add to drink and for garnish)
  • Sparkling water
  1. In a tall glass, crush the mint leaves, lemon juice, simple syrup (sugar crystals are okay to use instead) and a green apple slice with a muddler.
  2. Add ice cubes, then the apple juice and rum (if you like you can add vodka).
  3. Stir well, top off with sparkling water, garnish with red or green apples slices, serve -- and enjoy!
