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!
Thank God we have tons of mint in our herb garden, and lemons form our Meyer lemon tree. Of course, we also have delicious Ron de Venezuela to make today’s recipe. You know how much I love sharing nice stuff with you, so here is this beautiful, emerald, so inviting frozen mojito recipe!
Blended Mojito, the Easiest Mojito Ever
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.

Want to make a virgin version for the kiddos? Skip the rum and substitute it with water! They will get a minty frozen lemonade!
Having sugar issues? Substitute sugar with monk fruit (affiliate link), a natural zero-calorie sweetener, that doesn’t affect the glycemic index.
