Drink Recipe: Jalapeño Business Mojito

Discover a new favorite with the Jalapeño Business Mojito, a vibrant and refreshing cocktail that features Atlanta Burns' "Jalapeño Business" hot sauce. This recipe adds an innovative twist to the classic mojito, blending the familiar minty freshness with a bold, spicy kick.


- 2 ounces white rum
- 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 teaspoons sugar (or to taste)
- 6-8 fresh mint leaves, plus more for garnish

- A few drops of Atlanta Burns' "Jalapeño Business" hot sauce (adjust to taste)

1. Muddle Gently: In a sturdy glass, muddle the mint leaves with sugar and lime juice. The aim is to bruise the mint leaves to release their oils, not to shred them.

3. Build the Cocktail: Add the rum to the glass. Fill it with ice cubes.

4. Top it Off: Pour soda water over the ice. The amount depends on your taste preference and the size of the glass.

5. Mix: Use a long spoon to stir the cocktail gently, ensuring that the flavors are well blended.

6. Garnish: Add more fresh mint leaves and, if desired, a slice of fresh jalapeño to the glass for an extra touch of spice and elegance.

7. Serve: Enjoy this refreshing and spicy twist on the classic mojito, perfect for any occasion that calls for a little extra zing.
