So if you don’t know what a Mojito (pronounced mo-he-toe) is, let me tell you…

It’s a Cuban drink that usually contains rum, lime juice, sugar and mint.

Annmarie figured she didn’t want the rum, but she did want all the deliciousness of the original drink.

Her creation? The Mojita.


Your question of the day: What tropical island do you want to drink this mojita on?

Here’s this raw food recipe:

– 1 handful of mint leaves

Bring water to a boil, remove from heat and place in mint leaves. Let steep for 20 min.

– Juice of 3 limes
– 1 tbsp Honey or sweetener of your choice

Mix mint tea with lime juice and honey. Chill and serve with a mint leaf garnish.

Live Awesome!

    One word of advice (well, maybe longer than one word… 🙂
    That citrus juicer was being used backwards…the bottom of the lime (or lemon) should be facing down where the holes are in the bottom. That little bulge in the top is kind of counter-intuitive. It basically squishes the lime flat, and the holes in the bottom is where the juice runs out (and sometimes squirts from the top if you squeeze too hard, but I think that is peel oil, or juice if the peel splits open). My wife did it that way the first time too…and I only know because I read the instructions! (but i’ll never admit to that anywhere else!)

    Also, as a side note, after squeezing, it felt to me that these kind of juicers weren’t getting “all” the juice out. Some of the fibres weren’t ruptured. So I did a test, and juiced the lemons with the squeeze method, then after used a reamer with the strainer bucket. I didn’t get enough extra from the reaming method to make it worth while, so I’m sticking to the squeeze way.

    It looks good, I can’t wait to try it!

    Bali. And ditto for the squeezing technique critique. I was calling out to the video for you to hear me to switch. Try it out the other way. I bet you’ll like it.

  11. Sherre Vacek says:

    That is sooooo funny because I squeezed it that way, too, when I first got mine! Thanks, Annmarie and all you other people above, for making me feel like I wasn’t the only one to use logic on how to use this handy little device!

  13. Melissa says:

    BE CAREFUL! I used to have that press, but I almost crushed my finger with it, so I returned it because it was too dangerous for me.
