Laugh Lines 

Cocktails Anyone?
by Sheila Swerling-Puritt

I welcome my good friend Helen Hatton as a guest columnist this time around to promote Laugh Lines.

OK, the girls are coming over tonight to party... and raise a few funds for a great cause, defeating breast cancer! Put the donation box by the door, and greet everyone with a yummy Cherry Mojito... trust us, the laughter, good will and open wallets will soon follow! Cheers, indeed!!

Cherry Mojitos for a Crowd

Makes about 10 servings

  • 1 bunch fresh mint (about 1½ cups sprigs)
  • 3 cups Bacardi Limón rum
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups fresh lime juice
  • ¼ cup clear cherry liqueur, such as Maraska maraschino
  • 3 cups pitted fresh sweet cherries (about 1½ pounds)
  • Loads of ice for serving
  • Two 10 once bottles soda water
  • Garnishes
  • Fresh mint springs
  • Fresh cherries on the stem

In a large, nonreactive container, such as a glass pitcher, combine the mint, rum, sugar, lime juice, liqueur, and pitted cherries. Stir well to dissolve the sugar. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

For each serving, fill a large rocks glass or tumbler with ice and measure in 6 ounces (¾ cup) of the rum mixture (Kathy says "I like to use a ladle to do this"), being sure to get some of the cherries into each glass. Top with 2 ounces (¼ cup) of soda. Stir, then garnish with a mint spring and a cherry.

Kathy says: "You can make the cherry-rum mixture up to 3 days in advance and keep it refrigerated; the flavours will just get better and better!"
