Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    12 oz frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
    1 cup(s) mint leaves, fresh, chopped (plus extra for garnish)
    3 medium lime(s), 2 Tbsp for juice and 8 wedges for garnish
    4 cup(s) ice cube(s) crushed
    8 fl oz rum, light-variety such as whie or silver rum (about 1 cup)
    16 oz seltzer, cold

Directions

In a medium bowl, combine limeade concentrate, mint leaves and lime juice. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours for mint to infuse its flavors; strain to remove any solids.

When ready to serve, run a mint leaf around rim of each glass; fill each glass about halfway with ice. To each glass, add 1 ounce rum, 1 1/2 ounces limeade mixture and 1/4 cup seltzer. Stir in several mint leaves and garnish with lime wedge. Yields 1 drink per serving.

Notes: For a Rosy Mojito, swap thawed frozen cranberry juice concentrate for the limeade ( could affect POINTS values).
