Let’s get on to the weekend, shall we!? I know I’ve said it before, but May is a busy month. By Friday all I want to do is get rid of the kids and have cocktails.

That’s where the weekend comes in. Weekends are for doing nothing…

Here’s wishing you and me a do-nothing-fantastic weekend! Enjoy this Orange Mojito this weekend – Bottoms up!

ORANGE MOJITO RECIPE

This is the ultimate summer cocktail because it’s easy, fun, tasty, and it looks like sunshine!

The classic mojito consists of white rum, sugar cane juice, mint, lime juice, and soda water. There are different stories about the exact origination of the mojito, but the common denominators are that it started in the Caribbean where sugar cane, rum, and mint are plentiful.

With that said, if you don’t like rum you can substitute vodka, tequila, or gin. No, it won’t be classic but does it really matter if you enjoy it?

HOW TO MAKE AN ORANGE MOJITO RECIPE

  1. First, muddle ice, mint leaves, 1/2 lime cut into wedges, and three orange wedges in a tall glass.
  2. Add the rum, orange liqueur, and simple syrup.
  3. Shake or stir.
  4. Fill glass with ice and top off with club soda.
  5. Stir and garnish with a beautiful sprig of mint.
