Mojito Anyone?

My cooking skills may be lacking, but I can make a mean cocktail. A few weeks ago I blogged about my amazing sangria recipe, which I've been making all summer. I think my friends are starting to get a bit bored of it. My newest creation - my home-made mojito. My hubby loves a mojito so I found an easy recipe and changed the proportions just a bit.

Here's the Lifestyle Bohemia version: In a glass, combine 10 mint leaves, 1 tablespoon sugar, 0.5 ounces fresh lime juice, 2 ounces light rum. Muddle, mix & strain. Add 2 - 4 ounces club soda (depending on how light you like your drink). Pour your mojito into any of these fun glasses, from left to right: Sea Island Glassware by Pottery Barn (on sale; choice of blue or green); Como Tumblers by Crate & Barrel (choice of three colors); Libertinies by CB2 (all purpose - use for cocktails, wine or desserts).


  1. Oh nice! Will be sure to try it, I love mojitos. I used to go to that place on 7th & A lot for a mean mojito, but I haven't been in ages. Must try making them at home, though!

  2. Hey, thanks for the recipe. Will try it out asap. I believe that a great glass cam make a drink taste better. This selection looks awesome.

  3. Lovely glasses, purffect for a girls night!

    One Love,
