The FavorsPuerto Rico is known for it's rums so what better favor than a mojito kit. Check out the picture and description below from Christie and Owen's wedding. I found this great idea on The Knot.
“Our signature drink was the mojito -- Owen’s favorite drink,” Christie says. The couple gave their guests “mojito kits,” with muddlers and a drink recipe. Christie packaged the glasses with brown ribbon and labels with their logo, a copyright symbol, as Christie explains, “A ‘C’ inside an ‘O."
Here are a few resources for the kit;
- 10 fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
- 2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1 1/2 fluid ounces white rum
- 1/2 cup club soda
- Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice, and fill the glass with carbonated water. Stir, taste, and add more sugar if desired. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.
