Does anyone have a recipe for a Mango Vanilla Mojito?

I had a great cocktail at E&O Trading Company. It was a mango vanilla mojito. It must have been a special or it's now gone because I don't see it on their menu.

I'd love to be able to recreate it. I've found some mango mojito recipes, but I'm hoping someone here knows exactly what I'm looking for.

Help me Obi-Wan Bartender. You're my only hope.

Mango-Vanilla Mojito

2 lime wedges
5 fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup club soda
3 tablespoons rum
2 tablespoons Torani Vanilla Syrup*
1 tablespoon mango nectar
Crushed ice

Squeeze the lime wedges into a small glass; add wedges and mint to glass. Crush with the back of a spoon for 30 seconds. Add soda, rum, Simple Syrup, and nectar; stir gently. Serve over ice.

*or Monin, or any other brand. You can make your own syrup, too.

What was, er, mojitoid about it? Was it a rum drink? Was it mint-flavored? Did it have lime juice?

Or was it just a "mojito" the way those chocolate martinis a while back were "martinis"?

I guess wryly answered my questions then. Awesome.

Wow! I never cease to be surprised by Ask Metafilter.

And, yeah nebulawindphone, wryly pretty well has it covered about what makes it mojitoid. :)

If I can piggy-back here, for those of us who can't currently drink alcohol, what would make the best non-alcoholic version of this delicious sounding drink? Just omit the rum or replace it with something else?

I had a killer "Virgin Vanilla Mojito" at Citizen Cake in SF, and I'd say what made it a success was that it was very sweet, they used a shitboatload of mint leaves and had little crystals of "raw" sugar on the bottom.

I just checked their site, and they list it as "Mint, Lime, Vanilla Syrup & Ginger Ale"

Just to check back in - made these for a July 4th dinner last night and they were a gigantic hit. Couldn't have been yummier. If there was a way to mark something a best answer more than once, I'd be all over it.

Thanks again, wryly.

I made these for a BBQ on the weekend, and they were enthusiastically received. Thanks!
