The Marjito

A triumph! Another in my collection of purple cocktails featuring Marie Brizard Parfait Amour, a liqueur that is purple but tastes like orange. This one, of course, is a spin on the Mojito. I used fresh mint from my brother's garden.


The Marjito
1 oz. white Rum
1 oz. Marie Brizard Parfait Amour
1 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice (about one lime)
1 oz. soda water (Seltzer)
1 tsp powdered sugar
3-4 mint leaves (muddled)
Another sprig of mint for garnish
Crushed ice

Take 3 or 4 mint leaves and muddle them (bruise them with a muddle or the end of a spoon or something) with powdered sugar and about half the rum. Pour into tall highball glass. Add the rest of the rum, Parfait Amour, lime juice, and soda water. Fill rest of the glass with crushed ice. (You can use a blender to crush ice cubes.) Stir, stir, stir! Add another sprig of mint for garnish.
