About the Frohito Cocktail
Throw a classic Mojito in the blender to get this frozen tropical concoction.
Ingredients in the Frohito Cocktail
- 1 oz Mint Syrup*
- 4 oz Light Virgin Islands rum
- 1 oz Fresh lime juice
- 18 oz (2.25 cups) Crushed ice
Garnish: Mint sprig
How to make the Frohito Cocktail
Add .25 ounce of the Mint Syrup to each of two chilled cocktail glasses and set aside. Add the rum, lime juice and ice to a blender and blend until a uniform frappé consistency. Divide the mixture evenly between the two glasses and top each with an additional .25 ounce of the Mint Syrup. Garnish each glass with a mint sprig.
- 1 cup Fresh mint leaves, tightly packed
- 3 oz Simple syrup (one part sugar, one part water)
Bring a small saucepan half-full of water to a boil over high heat. Add the mint and blanch until wilted and bright green, about 5 seconds. Strain and add to a blender with the simple syrup. Blend until thoroughly liquefied and strain through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing firmly to extract all the liquid. Refrigerate before using. (Recipe yields about 3 ounces, enough for 6 drinks.)
