RECIPE: For Valentine’s Day, A Cherry Pomegranate Mojito

We’re starting our Valentine’s Day countdown with a twist on the classic Mojito, in ruby red.

The recipe was developed by Benihana as part of its February “romantic cocktail” menu.


Ingredients For One Drink

  • 4 lime wedges
  • 8 mint leaves
  • 2 ounces Bacardi Torched Cherry Rum*
  • 1/2 ounce PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur
  • 2 ounces pomegranate juice (our favorite brands)
  • 1/4 ounce grenadine syrup
  • Garnish: mint sprig and lime wedge or wheel
  • Ice cubes (make heart-shaped ice cubes)
    *You can substitute cherry vodka, but it won’t be a “Mojito.”



    1. Muddle lime and mint in a cocktail shaker.

    2. Add other ingredients, shake, pour into your favorite glass, and garnish with lime and mint sprig.



    Our favorite Orka ice cube trays are now made in a heart-shaped design. Just press, and out pops Valentine ice.

    We love these trays because the cover keeps the ice fresher and the design is stackable.

    Get some for yourself, and as Valentine gifts for friends.
