I bought a ginger mint plant at Trader Joe’s one day. I already had chocolate mint, grapefruit mint, orange mint and spearmint planted. I wasn’t planning on adding anymore mint to the garden. But I couldn’t pass up ginger mint.
The idea for this peach ginger mojito came when I was drinking the peach mojito with Dragon Berry rum. My daughter said something about ginger and peach together and the lightbulb turned on. I had the ginger mint plant. And I had a bottle of Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur. I’d already used it in the ginger basil mojito so I knew it would be good in this mojito.
And I was right. It was delicious. I actually made two different versions at first. One I topped with soda water like a traditional mojito. The other I topped with ginger ale. The soda water version was the winner. The ginger ale overpowered the delicate flavors of the white peach.
