Mojitos

I love a good cocktail, and I REALLY love a good mojito. I’m not kidding when I say part of what convinced me to move into my current apartment was that it’s just around the block from my favorite rum bar, where they make the BEST mojitos in town.

Now, I know that mojitos have become really popular and your chain restaurants now “make” them, and you can get mojitos mix. But that, is insane. Why do you need a mix for such a simple, fresh drink? Believe me, pass up that artificial crap, buy these simple fresh ingredients, and you’re minutes away from a great drink!

**Right now, I don’t have a good clear picture of the drink, but you can see it in the Caribbean Chicken Burgers post, and I am definitely going to be making this drink again, so I’ll add good pictures later!**

    Yumi yumi yumi. This meal looks so appealing and refreshing to me. This is my kind of meal, I think we should make this for the 4th! We really should make sweet potato fries, I love them and they’d make a great side for all of our cabin food!
