Labor Day Weekend Drink: The Cherry Mojito

Cherry Mojitos 2
Now that summer is coming to a close, switching up the flavor can take them through fall. This recipe for Cherry Mojitos is the perfect way to carry the flavor of mojitos through the season.
Cherry Mojitos
 
*note: this recipe makes a fairly large batch of cherry simple syrup. Feel free to cut the proportions in  half and it will yield approximately 1 1/4 c. (the recipe as-is makes about 2 1/2 c.)
 
For the cherry simple syrup:
1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. water
1 lb. fresh cherries, pitted and coarsely choppedTo make a  cherry mojito:
plenty of crushed ice
a few fresh mint leaves
1 T. fresh squeezed lime juice (sometimes I like to add a little more)
1/4 c. cherry simple syrup (fruit included)
1.5 oz. light rum
sparkling water or club soda

1. To make the cherry simple syrup: In a sauce pan, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Add the cherries, refrigerate until cooled before using.

2. To make a mojito: Add a  generous scoop of crushed ice into a highball glass, drop in the mint leaves (I like to tear them a little bit before I drop them in to help release the flavor). Using a muddler, or the handle-end of a wooden spoon, bruise the mint leaves by muddling the ice and mint together. Add lime juice, simple syrup and rum, stir well. Top off with sparkling water or club soda.
