43 Pineapple Mojito

One of my favorite finds when we were at Disney a few weekends ago was Licor 43. I can’t believe I’ve never tried it before, it’s amazing. It’s a Spanish liqueur made from different citrus flavors, vanilla and other herbs. 43 different flavors to be exact. This is no new product either, legend has it that Licor 43 dates back to 200 B.C., to Roman times. Supposedly after the Romans conquered the city of Quart Hadas, they discovered a liqueur made from citrus and aromatics. They passed the recipe down from generation to generation. In 1924 Diego Zamora purchased the recipe, along with a distillery in Cartagena, Murcia, Spain and starting producing Licor 43.

For the past week or so, we’ve been experimenting with it, adding it to Coke, Sprite, Dr. Pepper and different juices. This liqueur makes almost everything taste amazing. But yesterday, I was playing around with it, trying to combine two of my favorites, a mojito and rum and pineapple along with this liqueur, and this is what I came up with, the perfect tropical summer cocktail, a 43 pineapple mojito.

I purposefully left the sugar out of this cocktail because of the sweetness of Licor 43.
