    Hey Mark! A ginger Mojito sounds delicious. As for NA rums, you could also try Ritual or Lyre’s. Cheers!

    And of course, for a NA version, there’s a NA rum called ArKay out there (only one I know so far)

    For Ms. Blackburn – try using some ginger syrup for a Mojito variation – we use a little extra mint too
