I honestly think this might be the best mojito I've ever had, and you don't have to do any muddling. The blender does all the work for you. Plus, they are extra refreshing on a hot day since they are icy, like a frozen margarita. The texture reminded us of a slushy, so that's what we decided to name them. My only regret is that we didn't make a bigger batch, so we couldn't go back for seconds. I'd recommend at least doubling the batch!
