Dancingecko Mojito Mix – News Flash

Dancingecko Mojito

I think one of the earliest mixed drinks that I actually enjoyed was the mojito. Mint has always been a favorite of mine (ice cream, candy, and so on), and this was basically like a mint soda. But one that could get you drunk.

Anyways, we got the opportunity to try Dancingecko mojito mix last week, which is probably the easiest way to make a mojito I know of. The recipe, as per the bottle:

Dancingecko Mojito Ingredients

  • Fill a glass with ice.
  • Add three parts mojito mix.
  • Add one part rum.
  • Add a dash of soda water.
  • Stir.
  • Garnish with spearmint (optional).

The result? A pretty tasty mojito. It was sweet, bubbly, and had the flavors you’d want in the Cuban classic. It was strongly minty, which was nice, but I’d recommended an extra squirt or two of lime juice to balance it out — there wasn’t quite enough acid in the mix, but with the doctoring it was a super nice afternoon sipper.

For fun, I also tried a little adjustment — same exact recipe, but with a little less mix and, you guessed it, about a tablespoon or two of the delicious raspberry syrup that I use far too often. This gave it a beautiful color, and a taste halfway between a mojito and a raspberry lime rickey. Yum.
