Kumquat Mojitos

Classic mojitos are made with rum, muddled mint and limes; Jean-Georges Vongerichten keeps things interesting by swapping the limes for tart kumquats and kalamansi concentrate, the frozen juice of the sour Asian citrus fruit. If kalamansi isn't available, regular orange juice concentrate tastes just as good.
