6. Winter mojito
Made for us by: Melanie Clark, The Continental, 428 E. Locust St.
What’s in it: Like the traditional mojito, the winter mojito features rum, sugar, lime and ground mint leaves. The difference is instead of soda it uses hot mint tea. It’s served in a clear glass with a handle, allowing you to enjoy without your hands getting too hot.
Why it’s perfect for winter: A regular mojito is the perfect drink to cool down on a hot summer night. The winter mojito is the exact opposite for a brisk winter eve. It’s hot, but still refreshing and goes down smooth.
