Hola! Ok I am back with another drink for you, a Cherry Lime Mojito Recipe. The last drink recipe I shared was my Lime Mojito Recipe, which I hope you guys enjoyed. Once you get the hang of making these drinks, they are really simple to make, and they are really cost efficient. I know for me there are times I may want to enjoy a nice drink, but I do not feel like spending a gang of money. Not only do I not want to spend a gang of money, I do not want to deal with a bunch of folks. And in those times I rather kick back at home, have a drink and just chill and watch a movie.
Yes I did mention that this drink is cost efficient, because well it really is. Allow me to break it down for you. For a 375 ml of Barcardi it cost about $8.00. I usually get my mint from this little Korean vegtable fruit stand for a $1.00. Now if you do not have a Korean vegetable fruit stand in your neighborhood, then you can always visit your local supermarket and grab a bunch of mint for about $2.00. Limes are 10 for a $1.00 (well these days maybe 3 $1.00) or if you want to go the lime juice route (which I recommend). Then you can get a small lime juice for $2.00. And the cherries are around $3.00 a pound.
So if you spend about $20.00 making this drink, I think it’s well worth it. If you go to a bar, you’ll end up spending $13.00 per drink. But for only $20.00 you can have more than one drink, and made the way you like. I am all about saving a buck, and if you are anything like me then this Cherry Lime Recipe is right up you alley!
