If you haven’t heard of the Mojito cocktail, then I can’t imagine what rock you’ve been living under.
And, if you’ve never had a Mojito, then you don’t know what you’re missing!
It’s like lime and mint and sugar and rum have a party inside a Collins glass springform pan and your mouth is invited!
I love lime and mint together, but I make a point of not drinking pop, so when a coworker of mine was kind enough to drop off a pile of her old Kraft magazines, I got excited when I spied this recipe for a “Mojito Freeze” in one of the summer issues.
There were a few problems with the original recipe of course — I had to replace the Cool Whip (what is that stuff, anyways?) with real whipped cream and then I added some rum flavour to make it more cocktail-like!
But I was still a little skeptical at first — as someone who works in a liquor store and thinks that drinking is serious business, whether or not it was possible to capture all that awesome refreshing taste of a Mojito in a frozen pie seemed questionable (so glad I was wrong on this one).
Also, I had never made a frozen dessert.
