Nectarine Mojitos

Mojitos have soared on popularity in recent years and you can find numerous variations of them beyond the traditional Mint Mojito. I’ve made various mojitos including strawberry, peach, and watermelon. Nectarine Mojitos are among my favorite. Ok maybe I say that about every Mojito I try.

Nectarines are very similar to peaches but as much as I love peaches, I’ll choose a nectarine over a peach any day. To me, they have a much sweeter flavor than peaches. When chosing nectarines, look for ones with lots of speckles on the skin. They tend to be sweeter. Use either white nectarines, which tend to be the sweetest, or yellow, which are more tangy and taste most like peaches.
