Cancer Moon Mojito
Energetic Alignment: Love, Psychic Abilities, Peace, Spirituality
Combining the essences of jasmine, rose, lemon for a floral and crisp beverage, this concoction is attuned to the energies of the Cancer Full Moon for all your love, healing, and purifying lunar magic. A lighter and refreshing take on the Winter Rose, this lemon mojito-esque variation adds lavender, mint, and soda water to the symphony of floral flavors. With the addition of mint to refresh the mind and lavender for peace, this drink in cocktail or nonalcoholic form will help you attune to the Cancer Moon with calming and cooling energy, to help renew and cleanse away any emotional tides.
You can get the recipe for Jasmine-Rose Simple Syrup here, (you can forego the jasmine if you do not have it!).
Cancer Moon Mojito
- 10 leaves mint (can vary based on size)
- 3/4 ounce jasmine-rose simple syrup
- 3 dashes/drops lavender bitters (optional)
- 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
- 1.5 ounces white rum (optional if nonalcoholic)
- 1-1.5 ounces soda water
- In a collins glass, add mint leaves, syrup and optional lavender bitters. Muddle the mint leaves, so that they express their oils into the syrup. Then add lemon, rum if you are making it with alcohol, ice, and top with sodawater. (To make a non-alcoholic version, simply forego the rum, and alter the increments per your personal preference).
