Rainier Cherry Mojito Cocktail

I am in summer fruit heaven right now. Especially cherries in every possible form. And garden cocktails with cherries in every possible form. This easy Rainier Cherry Mojito Cocktail unites the delicate Rainier cherry with rum, mint, lime and a little turbinado syrup. I make this beauty right in my serving glass, so there is a minimum of muss and fuss. Of course, you can use any cherry you favor. Go crazy and substitute other berries and stone fruits for the cherries. Other herbs for the mint. Strawberries and cilantro. Raspberries and basil. Blackberries and sage. Tinker away!

Rainier Cherry Mojito Cocktail

  • 2 ounces rum
  • mint leaves (the Mojito Mint from the Drunken Botanist plant collection is superb)
  • 4 Rainier cherries, pitted and cut in half
  • 1/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce turbinado simple syrup

In the bottom of your serving glass, muddle the cherries and mint with the rum. Add the lime juice and turbinado syrup to taste. Some ice cubes and a mint sprig for a tasty garnish, and your’re done.
