It’s no secret that I love mojitos. Traditionally thought of as a summer drink, this version is a twist for the holidays or anytime, really, in my book.
This mojito reminds me of my summer trip to Miami Beach. We went to the Fountaineblue Resort, and I had a fantastic, out-of-this-world-good blueberry mojito. In a tall glass, just like this one.
But it’s not summertime anymore. And, although I love many aspects of winter in this part of the country (Philadelphia area), I think we could all use a little reminder of the warmer weather at times, and so why not? Drink a mojito! I love the colors of this mojito around this time of year. This drink is very simple to mix and you can opt to make 2 smaller drinks instead of the tall version pictured.
