This cherry lime mojito is a refreshing escape from the summer heat. Cherries, lime, mint, and sugar are muddled together to help release their individual flavors. Rum and sparkling water are added to complete this cocktail. You can use this same technique to make a variety of mojito-esque drinks just swap out cherries for another fruit.
4 cherries, pitted and quartered
6 mint leaves
1/4 lime cut into wedges
1 1/2 teaspoons demerara sugar
