Happy Friday! Time to celebrate with this Blood Orange Mojito!

Mojitos are hands down my all time favorite drink. They are so refreshing, light and sweet. I’ve made a Holiday version with Cranberry and Pomegranate and a Classic Mint Mojito.

Do you guys like Blood Oranges as much as I do? They are amazing and currently in season! I saw them at the grocery store and grabbed them right away.

Blood oranges are rich in antioxidants and also a good source of fiber.

This Blood Orange Mojito is tart from the fresh lime juice and orange and sweet from the simple syrup. Super refreshing and loaded with citrus flavor. The blood orange gives the mojito a beautiful pink hue. If blood oranges are out of season cara cara oranges can be substituted instead.

Serve the Mixed Berry Margarita with my Homemade Tortilla Chips and Healthy Greek Yogurt Guacamole!

How to make a Blood Orange Mojito

This cocktail takes less than 5 minutes to make. Simply, muddle the mint and the lime juice together in a glass. Top with rum, blood orange juice and simple syrup. Top with the sparkling water and enjoy! I love to garnish the glasses with wedges of blood orange!

How to make your own Simple Syrup

I took a short cut this time and used pre made simple syrup. However you can easily make your own simple syrup at home. Simply boil equal parts sugar and water and cook until the sugar dissolves. Allow to cool and add to your mojito.
