If you are like me, you have mint on your windowsill for one reason and one reason only.
Say it with me … MOJITOS.
I love myself a mojito, and they are pretty simple to make and enjoy. But since moving into the new house, we’ve been entertaining more than usual. (YAY!)
With entertaining comes the need for drinks for a crowd. And making mojitos for a large group is super duper easy (and tasty). The perfect signature drink for your summer parties. So you can make one big batch and avoid making single drinks all night. So more time to relax and chat. (YAY!)
And I especially like that you can make one big batch and then enjoy it all night. I’ve made these three times now, and they are quick and yummy. Okay, technically, I didn’t make these at Craft Night. I put my buddy Michelle to work. But you get the idea.
Try this easy recipe for mojitos to keep your whole party hydrated during the heat wave coming through this weekend. Or any day. I don’t judge.
