Moscato Mojitos

Moscato Mojitos

I have wild mint growing uncontrollably in my yard. If you happen to live nearby and need mint just let me know. I have an UNLIMITED supply and you’re welcome to come pluck some up. I’m not kidding when I tell you it grows like weeds. There’s no taming it. It comes back every. single.year. And while it used to aggravate me at first, now I’ve grown to embrace and respect it’s persistence. Not to mention besides smelling amazing I can have all the mojitos I could possibly want. Silver lining.

Moscato Mojitos

Gallo Family Vineyards sent me samples of their Moscato wines (pink, standard and red – options baby) and asked me to come up a celebratory drink in honor of National Moscato Day. With all that mint around Mojitos immediately came to mind. If you’ve never tried a Moscato wine, Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato is “bursting with delicious flavors of peach, honey, and ripe citrus – in a delightfully light style.”

Gallo Family Vineyards loves Moscato so much they petitioned to have May 9th be the official celebration day of all Moscatos.

    The reason I don’t have mint in my backyard is because the one year that I did have it, I could not control the darn thing!

    Looks great… Just wanted to point out that you have raspberries in the ingredients list, but no mention of them in the instructions.

      Hi LuAnne, Thanks so much and oops, I’ve gone back in and added when to add the raspberries.
