Everyone knows the classic mojito – a refreshing cocktail that mixes rum and mint. However, you have probably never tried a Co-jito. My interpretation of this Cuban drink replaces the rum with tequila for a bit more bite. What’s even better is that my recipe allows for you to batch-make this drink and serve your guests co-pious amounts of Co-jitos all night long!
3 cups fresh mint leaves
3/4 cup sugar
8 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
24 ounces Anejo Tequila
Fresh mint springs for garnish
Add mint, sugar, and lime juice to a pitcher and muddle with a wooden spoon to crush the mint leaves. Stir in the tequila, making sure the sugar has dissolved, then add ice. Garnish each rocks glass with fresh mint.
