Mojitos are a bartender's nightmare (oh, the muddling). But these frozen versions achieve the sweet mint flavor of the rum cocktail without the elbow grease, thanks to a whirl in the blender.

Recipe says 2 dozen in one place and 12 in another. I made it for a party (it is 12) and the lime zest was a great addition but it was way too sweet. Cut the sugar (or) double other ingredients and it would be amazing. Easy to do and a wonderful welcome to a party.
