Mojitos 4

Happy National Mojito Day!!

Today you’ll find me lounging by the pool, sipping a few mojitos and enjoying time with family and friends! We are prepping the food now, so I’m going to be short and sweet. This mix is typically a huge hit among our friends, so we like to make a large pitcher of the mix ahead of time and then individually add the vodka or rum for each drink poured. Since I am a vodka drinker this helps accommodate each individuals taste.
