well it is Friday | mojitos

We have a super fun weekly tradition with friends.. during the week we get together and have dinner + drinks. We think up silly rhyming phrases ( wing + wine wednesday etc ;) ) and it's a total blast :) This past Wednesday we had a mexican theme and made mojito's for the first time ever. Oh my word were they good.. thought I'd share the recipe incase any of you are up to trying one this weekend! xx


In an 8- to 10-ounce glass, combine 20 rinsed fresh mint leaves (each about 1½ in. long) and 2 teaspoons superfine sugar.

With a wooden spoon, pound mint leaves with sugar to coarsely crush.

Add 4 to 5 tablespoons light rum, 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice; mix well.

Fill glass with ice cubes and 4 to 6 tablespoons chilled soda water.

Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.

Yum! Happy weekend!
