Mojito Punch.

A new take on the classic Mojito, we used a vintage punch bowl to make this delicious mint cocktail easy to serve at your next party or gathering.

Mint, lime, and rum all in one drink? Count me in! Mojitos are a refreshing, mint-filled cocktail to make when it is warm outside. I’m never at a shortage of sprawling mint in my garden so finding recipes to use the leaves in makes me pretty happy. With plenty of zest and sweetness of flavor, the mojito is a perfect cocktail for a party.

I love making cocktails in punch bowls because it makes hosting that much easier. I am constantly pulling my punch bowl out during the holiday season so I wanted to challenge myself to get some more spring + summer rotations in the mix.

I throw some muddled mint leaves, freshly sliced limes and lime juice, mint simple syrup, rum, and club soda in my favorite vintage punch bowl and serve them up in some vintage punch glasses. Not only is this drink a hit at parties, but it makes for a beautiful center piece on my table or kitchen counter.

I love serving it this way at parties, because it is so easy to serve to a large group of guests, rather than muddling mint for each cup. I could see this one being the perfect baby or bridal shower cocktail too.

Mint Simple Syrup.

When we got married the Farmhouse at Serenbe had a garden just filled to the brim with fresh mint, surrounding the entire restaurant. When we built our house a few years ago and we were planning the garden I knew I wanted my own garden to have the same mass quantity of mint.

I love a good herb garden but bringing the mint into our landscaping made such a beautiful, fragrant and easy-to-grow ground cover. The mint spreads quickly and comes back bigger and better each year. It nearly grows itself, which is my preference when choosing things to grow, so make sure you’re planting it somewhere that you will surely want it to take over because it will.

With an overabundance of mint these days I am always trying to think of new things to do with the special herb so today I’m sharing an easy idea for making Mint Simple Syrup. 

Not only is the mixture gorgeous and tasty, it’s really versatile and can be used in so many cocktail drinks, desserts or even for coffee. And, makes a really nice homemade gift for a friend or neighbor too.

This versatile syrup is the perfect way to utilize mint.

How to cook Mint Simple Syrup

  1. First, chop your mint coarsely. Bring sugar, water and chopped mint to a boil in a saucepan. Simmer for two minutes and then pour into a clear jar through a mesh sieve. Be sure to push on the mint leaves and any solids in order to wring out all liquid.
  2. You could really substitute any herb you might have growing in abundance, like rosemary or lavender. You can also make and keep a few small jars on hand in your refrigerator when your herb garden is at its peak. It’s a great way to preserve the flavor and also fills your house with the most wonderful aroma.
  3. Love to know some other ways you love to use herbs. #HEIRLOOMED
