A Mojito is always a good idea, but how about a Mandarin Mojito?
1 handful of fresh mint
2 teaspoons of tagatoze or sugar
1 shot of spiced rum
1/2 cup of freshly squeezed mandarin orange juice
1 drop of natural almond extract (or 1 tablespoon of amaretto liqueur)
1 tablespoon of lime juice
Blackberries, mandarin peels, and mint for garnish
Place the mint in a glass with the sugar. Muddle together until a paste forms.
Add the rum and swirl to dissolve the sugar.
Add the ice to the glass, then pour in the mandarin orange juice, almond extract and lime. Use a spoon to gently swirl a few times to combine.
Garnish with berries, peels and mint leaves and enjoy!
