Here’s a twist on the traditional mojito drink recipe. Who says you have to make a mojito with lime juice? I’m more partial to apple cider. And in my garden I don’t happen to have fresh mint on hand, but I got plenty of basil, so that’s what I’m using. I got some rum but I’ma spike it with some apple pie moonshine. I think this sounds more like a mojito I can cotton to. Below I’ll show you all of the fix in’s that go in this Country Boy Mojito drink recipe, and I reckon you will like it just fine. Just like a fat ole hog loves to roll around in the mud on a too hot day. Post contains affiliate links to help keep this blog heehawing.
