🥫 Storage instructions
We can store our peach mojitos in the fridge in a sealable container until we want to drink them. This will keep them fresh and taste better than if stored at room temperature or outside in the heat.
Rum is what you will typically see in a mojito. Some great options are Bacardi, Appleton, Havana Club, and Cruzan. But honestly, just pick your favorite, and you’ll be good to go.
If the peach is under-ripe and too hard, let it sit with the sugar for a few minutes until it softens.
Frozen peaches will work, but allow frozen ones to soften at room temperature for a few minutes to make them easier to muddle.
👩🏻🍳 Expert tips
- Peel your peaches for easy muddling.
- Use a citrus juicer to juice your lime. This will save your fingers!
- When muddling, be sure to thoroughly crush the mint leaves to release their flavor.
- Use a dry rum instead of a flavored rum. Use the flavor from the fruit and mint. You’ll be grateful.
