This summer take the classic mojito cocktail to a whole new lemony level
When summer is in full swing and pool parties are calling, it's essential to know how to craft the perfect, refreshing and delicious cocktail that will have everyone beg for more. 
All you need is a fun new recipe (I've got that for you) and a bottle (or make it TWO!) of delicious Bacardi rum

Because of its unique and versatile character, smooth and light body, Bacardi rum makes the perfect choice for summer entertaining. When it comes to rum-spiked drinks there are really many options out there. From daiquiri to rum punch, pina colada and mojito. All are so great that it's hard to pick just one. 
But today (and just for YOU!) I'm sharing what I can honestly say is my new favorite of the summer. Take a look!

This is not your traditional recipe, but one extra way to enjoy your Bacardi. Think of the classic mojito with an Italian twist. A perfect blend of rum, mint, lime with the addition of some Italian limoncello for an extra kick. Minty and citrusy. Refreshing and sweet. With just the right balance of alcohol and sparkle to keep the party going.  
I'm sure that once you have a glass of this cocktail, it will be your new favorite too!

This drink is ready in a snap. Add a little sugar and mint (spearmint if you have it) to the lime. Using a muddler mash enough so that the mint release its flavor. Add rum and limoncello. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Top with ice and sparkling soda water. Decorate your glass with mint leaves and a lime slice. 
Simple as that!


And if you like to explore what distilled spirit has to offer, check out the new Bacardi Banana rum. Add it to lemon-lime soda or mix it with orange or strawberry juice, for a fun and fruity drink. A must-try especially for those of you that like to experiment with new flavors.

INGREDIENTS:

YIELD: one serving
    • half lime
    • about 5 fresh mint leaves
    • 1 tablespoon of sugar (or half spoon for a less sweet result)
    • 2 oz (60 ml) of Bacardi Superior Rum 
    • 2 oz (60 ml) of Italian limoncello 
    • 4 oz (120 ml) club soda 
    • ice

PREPARATION:

TIME: 5 minutes
Cut half lime in slices.

Place all the slices (but one that you will use to decorate the glass) in a tall sturdy glass. Add sugar and mint.
Use a muddler to crush the lime and mint leaves, just enough to release their flavor, and without breaking the leaves apart completely. 
Pour the rum and the limoncello.
Mix a little to make sure the sugar is completely dissolved.
Add ice and top with club soda.
Decorate the glass with a slice of lime and more mint if you'd like.
Enjoy :)
