Today I’m serving you a Caribbean recipe: the blended golden mojito!
YIELD 4 servings


  1. Sugar (for coating rims of glasses)
  2. 1 lime wedge
  3. 1 cup gold (not dark) rum (such as Mount Gay)
  4. 1/2 cup (generous) fresh lime juice
  5. 1/3 cup sugar or light agave nectar
  6. 4 to 5 cups ice cubes
  7. 12 fresh mint leaves plus 4 mint sprigs for garnish

Place enough sugar on small plate to reach depth of 1/4 inch. Run lime wedge around rim of 4 Martini glasses to moisten. Dip rims into sugar on plate. Blend rum, lime juice, and 1/3 cup sugar in blender until sugar dissolves. Add 4 cups ice; blend until slushy and almost smooth, adding up to 1 cup more ice, if desired. Add 12 mint leaves and blend until small green flecks appear. Pour into prepared glasses. Garnish with mint sprigs.
