The fall solstice is officially upon us, but no one is quite ready to shut the door on summer. Cat & Cloud to the rescue — the guys have shaken up a cocktail to help ease our transition into cooler weather.
The More-Than-A-Mojito Mojito is milky, minty, sweet with just a kiss of kick. The mint and cold brew make for a cool, refreshing sip, which is subtly balanced by the warm spice of the cinnamon and cayenne. It's summer meets fall in a glass — with a shot of rum, if you're looking for a buzz.
- 8oz Califia Farms XX Espresso Cold Brew
- 3 fresh mint sprigs, muddled
- 1 oz simple syrup (equal parts boiled water + sugar)
- 1 oz Rum (or not)
- Pinch of Cinnamon
- Pinch of Cayenne
For the non-alcoholic version, mix ingredients in a glass and stir gently. If you're adding a shot of rum, mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker and pour over ice in a glass.
