As any gardener worth her salt knows, it’s not hard to grow mint—and lots of it—in the garden. So what to do with your bumper crop? Why mojitos of course!

At Cocina 214, a Tex-Mex restaurant in Winter Park, Florida their cocktail program incorporates fresh mint from an on-site garden into a luscious hot weather sip loaded with—thanks to a helping of fresh and juiced pineapple—plenty of tropical flavor.
