This is the last hurrah of summer.  Finally, cooler temperatures have arrived.  Just as soon as we get done drinking this mojito we will say good bye to summer.  Drink up!

  1. I remember at the beginning of the summer I was all ambitious and I tried to grow my own mint so I could make peach mojitos – one of my favorite drinks. Boy did I fail, because I did not make a single one. Thanks for the reminder. It's not too late yet!


  2. I had my first Pear Majito the other day. I wasn't very impressed with it. Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits so I will definitely have to try this one. Yummy.Southern Eclectic


  3. What? Jeez Louis, how the heck did I miss this post, Velva?! I saw a \”mixologist\” make a mojito on TV muddling everything in the bottom of the glass WITH the ice! It worked well cuz it added a bit of water to the cocktail from the crushed ice and most likely really chilled the cocktail. By the way, if you want to make mojitos, I suggest you invest in a muddler, a spoon (as the recipe suggests) does not work. It cuts into the fruit and mint and is ineffective. Wooden muddlers are about $7, don't get metal.Wish we lived closer, me likey your cocktail hour!
