Tall glass filled with a Peach Sorbet Mojito Float.

Coming home after a long vacation, I opened the door to our house, walking into the familiar-yet-no-longer-familiar. Do you know that feeling, when your eyes look around and you have to remind yourself, oh yes, this is what the kitchen looks like, and your nose plays tricks on you why does the house smell new? And then the cat greets you with unrelenting squawks, letting you know she missed you. Before you know it, suitcases are scattered all over and the unpacking ensues. A few naps here and there, and you battle the jet lag and begin to wonder what to cook for dinner.

After over a week of travels in Asia, returning home to my kitchen is almost surreal, and I miss the daily dim sum and nightly glasses of wine. Quite honestly, one of the hardest parts of coming back home is cooking, and this is coming from someone who loves to cook (as you know quite well!). I want to return to the life of poolside service and slushy drinks, and Evian mist sprays and not having to do the dishes.

We’ve already started planning our next vacation. (Can we leave tomorrow?)

I may miss slushy drinks, but no one says you can’t make your own! This Peach Sorbet Mojito Float is one way to pour myself a vacay, even if I have to wait a while until our next one. I used some peach mint sorbet that I recently made, and transformed it into a peachy, slushy mojito that will hold me over until our next getaway. It just may take several glasses.

HOW TO MAKE A MOJITO FLOAT

A mojito float takes everything you love about a mojito, sweetened with scoops of sorbet — think of it as a sorbet float for grown-ups! To make a mojito float:

1. Place scoops of peach sorbet in a tall glass. Homemade or storebought peach sorbet both work nicely in this recipe.

2. In a cocktail shaker (or glass), muddle the mint, lime, and agave nectar, if using. Stir in the rum and add the ice. Shake, then strain and pour over the sorbet. Top with club soda. Stir and garnish with mint, lime, and slices of peach. Cheers!

Notes

What if I don't have mixology tools?
Don't have a muddler? Use a pestle or the end of a wooden spoon!
Don't have cocktail shaker? Use a mason jar, thermos or hydroflask!
Don't have a jigger/measure? Use a measuring cup!
Don't have a tall mixing spoon? Use chopsticks!
Can I use other flavors of sorbet?
Of course. This would be delicious with any fruity sorbet -- raspberry would be amazing.

    Oh do I know that feeling! It’s a tough one… though I’m always kind of happy to routine to some normalcy. We’re working on plans for a November/December vacation where we just sit by the pool or on a beach and drink cold boozy drinks and read books. :-) Your travels looked magical. If we lived out that way, I have no doubt that Eric and I would do a trip to Asia. Not sure it’ll happen for a while, but one day I’d love to go (and I’ll be sure to contact you for recs). These mojito floats… I want all of them. All the time. With an extra splash of rum. ;-)

      One day, you and Eric must make plans to sit on a beach in Asia – I know it’s so much harder from the East Coast, but one day!! I feel like in general, it’s harder to travel from California, only because we seem to be far from everything! Europe, which used to be so manageable from NY, is now just as far as Asia – so not matter what, it’s a long haul. But totally worth it :)

      Anyhow, that’s what these drinks are for, to keep us going for all the times in between! Can’t wait to hear where your winter vacation plans take you!
