I don't know how to say it in Romanian, it sounds beautiful, but I know that it is delicious and so cool, especially in this heat.

  • 250g sweet cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 sachet of gelatin
  • 1 lg grated lime peel
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 lg mint syrup
  • 250 ml whipped cream
  • 1 lg freshly chopped mint
  • 1 1/2 cup finely crushed biscuits
  • 6 lg melted butter

Servings: -

Preparation time: less than 60 minutes


Beat the cheese with 1/4 cup of sugar until smooth and melt the sugar. Add the gelatin prepared according to the instructions on the envelope, the peel and lime juice, the mint syrup. It mixes well.

Mix with whipped cream and chopped mint. Pour into a pre-prepared yena bowl with cling film. Let it cool until we prepare the top.

The finely crushed biscuits are mixed with the rest of the sugar and the melted butter. Sprinkle over the cream and cover with foil by lightly pressing the mixture over the cream. Refrigerate (where it is coldest) for 3 hours.

When it is removed, turn it over on a tray and leave it for a few minutes at room temperature before serving.

Mint leaves can be added to an enormous number of dishes and drinks for an extra dash of flavor, and it is used in chicken, lamb, fruits, tea and certain alcoholic beverages. Fortunately, mint leaves can be frozen for later use. Freezing them allows them to be used months later while still retaining their original flavor. The ability to freeze the mint leaves is very useful if you simply have more mint leaves than is necessary in a particular recipe. Rather than throwing away the excess mint, you can save it for later.

Rinse the leaves in a sink and pat them dry. All herbs, plants and fruit should be washed under running water before cooking with them.

Place whole or chopped up leaves in an ice cube tray, and add water. Ideally you should fill each slot in the tray halfway with mint leaves to allow an ice cube to properly form around the mint. Put this tray in the freezer. Freezing the leaves in ice will retain their natural green color.

Remove the mint ice cubes from the tray after they have completely frozen. Put the cubes in the zip-top bag, and put them back in the freezer.

Thaw the mint cubes before using them in recipes or foods. The mint ice cubes themselves can also be dropped into cold beverages.

Frozen Mojito

Mojitos are such a refreshing cocktail. There is something about the rum, mint, and lime that works. Add in the element of being frozen and let & rsquos say this frojito (see what I did there) becomes unbeatable in the drink department.

I love to order these on hot summer days when I want something cool and crisp, without being overpoweringly sweet.

Whether you are floating in a lazy river, poolside, lakeside, or on the boat, you can enjoy some of these delicious cocktails all summer long.

Mojito Slushy Recipe

Mojitos are traditionally a Cuban cocktail. I wanted to honor the traditional flavors and switch it up a bit. I grabbed my blender and made a slushy mojito or frozen mojito however, you choose to call it. This cocktail is so quick to make that within minutes you can be enjoying your happy hour.

What is in a Frozen Mojito?

  • Ice | Gives your mojitos that frosted and slushy texture. Perfect for a hot summer day!
  • Rum | I reach for a white rum over dark. I find it blends well and helps bring out the fresh flavors in mint and lime.
  • Simple Syrup | You can easily make your own simple syrup or buy it.
  • Lime Juice | I highly recommend fresh lime juice for that extra crisp and refreshing flavor that you can get from a bottle.
  • Club Soda | Offers a subtle bubbly effect to your mojito slush.
  • Mint | You can & rsquot have a mojito without a few fresh mint leaves. This last ingredient completes the drink. It also gives it that bright green color during the blend. Since the mint is pulverized in this preparation, a frozen blended mojito takes on a bigger, bolder mint flavor that traditional mojitos.

How To Make Simple Syrup

Simple syrup has become more and more common to find in most liquor stores and major grocery stores in recent years, but that stuff is NOT cheap for what amounts to some sugar water.

You can buy simple syrup if you want, but I highly recommend making it at home if you are a cocktail-lover.

It is called & ldquosimple & rdquo syrup for a reason. It is just 1 part water to 1 part sugar.

Add your sugar and water into a small saucepan, and turn the heat to medium and stir.

The sugar will dissolve once it is warmed up. Once the sugar is all dissolved, remove from heat and allow to cool before pouring into a bottle and storing in the fridge.

What To Serve With Frozen Mojitos

This recipe is versatile, and you can serve it with your favorite recipes. Here are some of my personal favorites when it comes to serving up mojitos. I think you will love the pairing.

  • Traeger Shrimp Kabobs | Simple and easy shrimp kabobs that are lightly seasoned and cooked on the grill. Add in your favorite sides with your mojito ready to be sipped on.
  • Reversed Seared Hanger Steak | This steak is incredible in flavor, buttery soft and served with a bourbon pan sauce that will leave you amazed. It tastes better than most restaurant steaks you can buy. Trust me this recipe is a winning steak recipe.
  • Korean Grilled Chicken Legs | Mojitos and chicken go together in my books. Tender, juicy chicken legs that have been grilled till they offer a slightly crispy crust.

Which Rum Is Best For A Mojito?

Reach for a white rum when making mojitos. It has an exceptional smoothness that pairs well with the other ingredients in the recipe. I always reach for a light white rum whether I am making a classic mojito or even this frozen mojito recipe. Bacardi Silver Rum is a trendy one that many use, and is my go-to as well.

What Does A Mojito Taste Like?

A mojito is a cocktail that is very popular all over the states. You will find a mojito offers a tart, crisp, and minty flavor. This cocktail is not sour, but will give you that tart pucker. The muddled fresh mint leaves next to the lime work well together. Then add in your other ingredients for one delicious and refreshing cocktail.

My frozen version uses all the same components of a classic mojito but with more ice that & rsquos blended.

Can I Make Frozen Mojitos Ahead of Time

Because of the frozen slushy aspect, you don & rsquot want to make your drinks too far in advance. You run the risk of them melting if sat out on a counter or if in the freezer it will harden up more than you would like.

You can mix the base of the recipe ahead of time and hold back pouring the ice in and mixing, to prep ahead.

If you are a fan of mojitos, give my frozen mojito recipe a chance. I think it will win you over with the first refreshing sip you take.

If you DO want to prep these ahead, store them in the freezer for about an hour to two hours before you are ready to go. It & rsquoll freeze them enough to keep them slushy for a while if transported in a cooler. Just bring a spoon with to give them a stir once they start melting. If you & rsquove done your job properly and added enough booze, it shouldn & rsquot freeze completely solid.

How to Freeze Limes

Want to recreate a margarita- and guacamole-filled trip to La Paz, Mexico, or a ceviche feast from Lima, Peru? Or, are you a big fan of citrus drinks? If limes aren't as available in your home city as they are in Mexico or Peru, freezing them is one of the best ways to store limes for year-round citrus flavor.

Freezing limes and other citrus fruit ensures you always have some on hand. As a bonus, it lets you take advantage of sale prices at the grocery store and helps you use more local and in-season fruit year-round, instead of relying on expensive off-season imports that may have a larger carbon footprint.

Actually, you still don’t really know what they are, but you tell people that Gatorade helps replenish them. And you sound smart saying it!

It’s a mystery, and may always be, but we find comfort in the cool touch of the bitter-tasting blue berry drink reaching our stomachs. The mystery may in fact be the reason we keep chugging away. It’s marketing genius because our curiosity converts to a purchase and though our thirst for liquid is quenched, the thirst for an answer is always there.

Growing Mint

Mint practically grows itself all you need to do is confine this spreading perennial herb to a container or confined bed to keep it from taking over your yard! It’s a wonderful herb that adds a fruity, aromatic flavor to foods and tea — plus, is useful for health remedies such as aiding digestion and relieving headaches. See how to plant and grow mint.

About Mint

Mint is a perennial herb with very fragrant, toothed leaves and tiny purple, pink, or white flowers. There are many varieties of mint — all fragrant, whether shiny or fuzzy, smooth or crinkled, bright green or variegated. However, you can always tell a member of the mint family by its square stem. Rolling it between your fingers, you’ll notice a pungent scent and think of candy, sweet teas, or maybe even mint juleps.

As well as kitchen companions, mints are used as garden accents, ground covers, air fresheners, and herbal medicines. They’re as beautiful as they are functional, and they’re foolproof to grow, thriving in sun and shade all over North America. Since mint can be vigorous spreaders, you simply have to be careful where you plant it.

Health Benefits of Fresh Mint

Fresh mint is not just delicious it also has some amazing health benefits.

  • Aid in digestion and digestive health (try some to soothe your upset stomach)
  • Relieve symptoms of IBS, indigestion, and heartburn
  • Possibly relieves tension headaches
  • Provide a great source of vitamins & minerals
  • Boost your skin health
  • Ease nasal breathing
  • Balance the oral microbiome
  • Serve as a low-calorie, low-glycemic alternative to flavored beverages when mixed with still or sparkling water (mint contains only about 5 calories per 2 tablespoons)
