Can I just start off by telling you all how incredibly over the moon excited I am? We launched "Bundy" (that's my boat) one full month ahead of schedule and have kicked off our 2016 boating season. We celebrated this and my brother's 30th birthday hard this weekend. Let's just say, Sunday night I crashed, and Monday was not a blast.
Last summer, my husband became obsessed with being a mojito making master while on the lake. He played bartender while I kicked back and watched the kids play at the sand bar, cocktail in hand.
Because all good mothers drink while watching their kids.......
Recipe yields 1 cocktail
8-12 mint leaves
1 tbs dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 a lime, cut into wedges
Small handful of fresh pineapple chunks
1.5 oz dark rum
Add mint, brown sugar, pineapple limes to the bottom of your glass. Muddle using a pestle, or the end of a wooden spoon.
Fill the glass with ice.
Pour rum over ice, top off with soda water.
Give a stir and enjoy!
