Blood Orange Mojitos

Blood Orange Mojitos via Dressed In Orange

With a thriving orange mint plant and the blood oranges I got at the farmer’s market on Saturday, I had to make mojitos.  I followed a standard mojito recipe, but replaced limes with blood oranges and used orange mint instead of spearmint.  The result was sweet and refreshing – perfect to sip during my lazy afternoon watching reality TV.
