chillaxin' with a mojito (or fauxjito)



today's a sunny day and my fav thing to do on a sunny day is chillax with a mojito- or rather, in my case, a fauxjito. mom taught me how to make the best ones!


we sit in the hammock- or at the patio- railing- bar- top- table mom designed from an old shipping pallet- and just look out at our domain. dad and meatball even played a joke today when they mowed "meatball" into the grass!



mom's mojitos are not just any ol' mojito- they are special...and the secret ingredient is coconut! it makes the best summer drink taste even better.


here are the recipes for both the faux and mo versions:


FAUXJITO for one

  • 8oz coconut water- our fav is bai because it doesn't leave a weird aftertaste. we used the molokai coconut, but the other flavors would add a nice twist.

  • 8oz sprite or other lemon lime soda

  • a few sprigs of mint

  • a wedge of lime

  • 2-3 ice cubes

1. muddle the mint with a spoon against the edge of a pint glass.

2. pour in the coconut water and soda

3. squeeze the lime wedge to get the juice, then throw it in the mix

4. stir gently

5. add 2-3 ice cubes, as preferred


for the adult version you use coconut rum (mom prefers malibu rum or sugar island rum) and club soda.


MOJITO for one

  • 2oz rum

  • 10oz club soda

  • a few sprigs of mint

  • a wedge of lime

  • 2-3 ice cubes

1. muddle the mint with a spoon against the edge of a pint glass.

2. pour in the rum and club soda

3. squeeze the lime wedge to get the juice, then throw it in the mix

4. stir gently

5. add 2-3 ice cubes, as preferred


i hope you enjoy the deliciousness that we've concocted today- tell us what you think...and drink up!


did you know that our rescue, motley zoo, has it's very own pale ale (brewed by postdoc brewing, redmond, wa)? and that when we say drink up, you also save a pup? 10% of proceeds go to support the rescue! be sure to look for it if you're in wa...and hopefully soon enough we will take over the world with the best selling pale ale ever!


rock on-

love,

little mouse
