Fermented Mojito

It’s Friday, which means it’s homemade pizza night. The perfect evening for a small drink, especially since everyone has been cranky today. And the girls will certainly enjoy a special treat tonight as well. I’m sure *someone* somewhere has already “invented” a fermented mojito, but I unvented one tonight. That’s an Elizabeth Zimmermann term, if you didn’t know.

handful fresh mint leaves (spearmint works nicely, but peppermint will do in a pinch)
1/2 lime, cut into wedges
1 cup ice cubes
1 1/2 oz rum (optional – leave out, obviously, for the kiddos)
1/2 c. water kefir

Muddle (mash with a spoon) the mint leaves in the bottom of a glass (or jar). Add lime wedges and muddle again. Fill glass with ice and pour rum over, if using. Top off your glass with water kefir and enjoy!
