Ta da! The Apple Basil Mojito.

Here we go again! Another entry for Kitchen-Play has me oooing and aaaahing still again!

Surely you know by now that I love participating in the Progressive Menu at Kitchen Play. Here I present to you the Cocktail portion of this month's menu, sponsored by the U.S. Apple Association. Drum roll PLEASE!!!!

The Apple Basil Mojito created by Cheeky Kitchen.

The star players all lined up:

I confess that I was not prepared in the barware department for this drink so I had to use a pretty little vintage punch mug for the picture, but I assure you that it did not affect the taste one itsy-bit!

My children enjoyed drinking (inhaling) their non-alcholohic mojitos. They gobbled up the apples, chewed on the basil and greedily slurped up every last drop of the mojito! I on the other hand realized that this was the perfect occasion to dust off the rum bottle that I have had in the basement for a while and try mine with a touch of rum. Delicious!

You must try this drink and if you hurry and do so before September 30th, you can enter the Kitchen Play Progressive Menu for your very own chance at $100. Cheers y'all!


  1. Your version looks so refreshing! And I love the idea that this can be made for both kids and adults to enjoy (making sure to keep tabs on which mugs have the rum!).

    Thanks for entering (again!) and good luck in the giveaway.
