Mojitos are traditionally made with white rum, so that’s what is used in this recipe. However, a dark or spiced rum would work really well with the flavors from the apple cider, so if you prefer you can absolutely use that.
The garnishes are optional, but they do add a great flavor and aroma, so they are definitely worth adding. This recipe uses mint sprigs, cinnamon sticks, apple slices, lemon and star anise. Mint sprigs are a traditional mojito ingredient, and add a nice freshness along with the apple slices and lemon. Cinnamon and star anise and a warming spice that’s perfect for fall.
