Sloppy Joe’s Mojitos

It’s been the perfect weekend: 80 degrees, no humidity, bright blue skies with white fluffy clouds, and lots of porch sittin’ and mojito drinkin’. Need I say more?

Sloppy Joe’s Mojitos

from Gourmet

Light Rum (I use Bacardi)
Fresh mint
Soda Water

Put a teaspoon of sugar in a highball glass, squeeze in the juice of 1/2 small lime, and toss in the squeezed lime shell. Muddle for a moment with 3 sprigs fresh mint, add 1 jigger light rum and handful of fine ice, fill with chilled soda, and relax.

    You do not need to say more! Very jealous of your lack of humidity and your mojito.

    Boy, my mouth is watering for that mojito, Jes, right now!
    And you are soooo right about supporting your local farmers market; we have to get back to basics (and the garden).
