The Esmeralda Frozen Mojito + VIDEO


This frozen mojito is a super refreshing summer concoction. Its name, the Esmeralda Frozen Mojito, comes from its bright beautiful emerald color. Esmeralda means emerald in Spanish and I promise this is a true gem.

Last week was busier than ever. Today, we just picked more than 80 pounds of tomatoes from our kitchen garden. So, I already know my weekend will be busier than ever, canning and canning again and again.

It’s super hot outside and after all the hard work I feel like partying. For me, that means mojito time! All we need to refresh ourselves is a so a green frozen mojito, the so-called emerald mojito, made in a blender! Bingo!

This Esmeralda Frozen Mojito was featured on Shecky’s New York City Life.  I checked up the recipe and realized this is pretty much the same blend mojito that is in the cocktail menu of Zafra Gourmet & Ron.

Zafra is the al fresco restaurant at the Hacienda Santa Teresa in my home country, Venezuela. At the Hacienda, they distill and age some of the best rum añejos in the world, all of them distinguished with the Appellation Contrôlé Ron de Venezuela.
