Rum • Sweet
No-Blender Frozen Mojito

Mojitos can be a chore to make—just ask a bartender. But these frozen Mojitos made in sandwich baggies are a breeze—no muddling or blenders required. The easy-to-make mint syrup gives the drink its signature herbal zing, while a garnish of fresh mint puts it over the top. Use its cooling properties to counter ultra-spicy dishes or sip it by the pool (full-sized or kiddie) on a steamy afternoon.
