On the docks of Spain…or Italy…or Whitewater. Honestly any of them work, and a mojito is what best accompanies the view. This episodes drink is the Dirty Mojito.
The Shopping List:
750ml of Pucker Vodka….$9.50
One box of Jello…$1.50
Start by throwing 4-5 ice cubes into a glass. Temperature is essential to a good mixed drink.
Drizzle some club soda over the rocks, about 2-3 parts will do the trick.
The crucial piece: Add 2-3 shots of Pucker vodka.
Dice up the mint leaves, not too fine but enough so they aren’t massive bushes floating amongst your drink.
Add in a dash of dry jello mix; this is what brings out the orange flavor.
Cut up a lime and add 3-4 slices on top of the drink.
Damn do I love mojitos. Hands down one of my favorite drinks, no questions asked. A mojito a day may not keep the doctor away but it will keep me satisfied.
The dirty ‘jito is in fact dirty; a mix of vodka and club soda simmered down by garnishes and jello powder makes for a cheap mojito. It isn’t as good as the real mojitos but it will suffice for my budget. The hangover scale is kind on this one with a soft 2/5, vodka has never bothered me much. Tastiness tops out at a 4.3/5, the mint adds a new feature to the tanginess. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a little kick to their drink. As always, drink responsibly.
