Finally we have a mint bush in our garden. It is a blast. What is even better is our fresh basil. Ah, gotta love the home-grown stuff 🙂 When you know it’s yours, it just tastes better! So if I have mint then why not make mojitos? I actually would have preferred the original – not virgin – version but virgin was requested so virgin it is. Maybe I will just sneak a bit of vodka into mine 😉 It just tastes better with it….
On a summer day it is a lovely drinking treat. It’s the best if we let it sit in the fridge so the flavors mix in together. And of course, the colder the better. 🙂
