Yesterday after work, my lovely friends Mallery and Lena came over for happy hour… well sort of.
We’re bringing it back… but with a twist.
Those of you who know me or Lena, know that she is like 8+ months pregnant and due any day now. So Mallery concocted the idea of “mommy mojitos” from a pin she saw on Pinterest. If you’re confused at what a “mommy mojito” is, it’s basically the mojito sans alcohol.
Mal played bar tender as Lena and I sat back and watched. It was a perfectly rainy but warm afternoon, so when the drinks were finished we took them to the porch to sip and chat for a bit…
This is a must-make recipe friends. It’s perfectly light for summer or just sweet enough for rainy spring days…
- Lime (for garnish and juice)
- Carbonated water
- Apple juice
- Mint leaves
- Simple syrup infused with mint leaves
Mix equal parts apple juice, water, and lemonade together. Sweeten with simple syrup. Squeeze some lime juice in for flavor and garnish with mint leaves and lime.
Spoil your friends this weekend. Turn on the Civil Wars, sit on the porch and catch up on life… all while sipping mommy mojitos. If you don’t have a “mommy” in the group, feel free to spike it.
