Thirsty Thursday:My Mojito

I've been practicing my mojito making skills this week in anticipation for my lovely friend, Miranda, and her family coming for a visit soon.  She told me she's been dreaming about drinking mojitos by the ocean.  What are friends for, if not to grant these kinds of wishes?
I used the recipe below and then added a few fresh raspberries for decoration/extra flavor. Can't wait to hand this refreshing beverage to my long-time gal pal!
2 Tbl. fresh lime juice
2 heaping tsp. superfine sugar
1 C crushed ice
12 fresh mint leaves + sprig for garnish
1/4 C White Rum
2 Tbl club soda
Stir together lime juice and sugar until sugar dissolves. Add 1/4 C crushed ice. Tear mint leaves in  half and add to glass. Gently stir (muddle) for about 15 seconds, then add rum, remaining ice, and club soda. Gently stir for 5 seconds and serve! 


Today's Gratitude List:
  • the shiny new kitchen faucet (and plumbers)
  • friendly neighbors (it's nice to actually know their names)
  • healthy family


  1. Yummy! I have fresh mint in the backyard. Will have to try it!

  2. That drink looks very refreshing. I love anything with lime and fruit! I'm having a blog anniversary giveaway, so if you're interested in entering stop by!

  3. Oooh I love a good Mojito. Nothing quite like fresh mint, lime and rum combined. YUM!


Your comments make my day! Thank you!
