Happy Hour - Gamecock Summer Frozen Mojito

Gamecock Summer Frozen Mojito

1 pound bag frozen pitted cherries
3 cups crushed ice, plus extra to serve if desired
1/2 cup packed fresh mint leaves
1 cup white rum
Lime Simple Syrup, recipe follows
Lime wedges and fresh cherries, for garnish

Lime Simple Syrup:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 limes, juiced and zested

Lime Simple Syrup Directions: In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, water, lime juice, and lime zest over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the syrup to cool to room temperature minutes before using.

Directions: Place the frozen cherries, ice, mint, rum, and lime simple syrup in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into glasses and top with crushed ice. Garnish with lime wedges and cherries.

- You can also try vodka instead of rum...or...make these alcohol free!
