Woohoo! I finally did it! I made my first Mojito. I can’t say that it was the best Mojito that I have ever had (one nameless, tiny Caribbean island still makes the best in my opinion), but it certainly satisfied my craving for the freshness of this minty drink. I mean, where else can you combine the zip of citrus lime with the effervescent snap of club soda and mint? Oh, did I forget to mention the rum? Of course, quintessential rum from the Barbados is a given (“Rumbullion….that hot, hellish and terrible liquor”). I tried my hand at experimenting with the green stuff too – Chocolate Mint seems to work quite well (I know Spearmint is traditional, but I can’t get past the “skunky” odour of the stuff). Anyways, you can snap up the recipe at Bacardi (I would have put it here – but the whole “age-of-majority-thingie” might get me in trouble). Speaking of Bacardi (the Mojito site), now there’s a perfect example of “trendy gone cheesey” (you overdid the samba folks….). It started out ok with some fun music, then it just got pornographic towards the end – I mean….just look at that model’s tongue (wow!). Orgasmic…..anyone?
Observant – this post’s for you! “Bottoms up!”….Oops, I mean, “Cheers!!!” [Keep it clean PM, keep it clean…..!]
