National Mojito Day



Meet this month's most refreshing and tastiest drink, the Mojito.

Being as it is National Mojito Day, I thought I and a little helping hand from the lovelies at NotOnTheHighStreet.com share with you some great refreshing summery recipes, not just for us adults, but mocktails for our little ones or those that do not drink too.

When I was younger a lot younger, I used to love working behind the bar and making cocktails, between you and I, I probably drunk most of them and always enjoyed creating the next big thing so I like to think and what better way to share on a sunny day a few refreshing creations alcoholic and non-alcoholic after all we should ALL have something we can enjoy on these summer days.

No matter what you like these easy to make drinks are super versatile and you can pretty much add any fruits, as long as you armed with the right equipment, i.e. tall glass, mint and ice you are pretty much set, to have a cracking summer with friends and family alike of all ages, with a little helping hand from Taste Cocktails too.

So let's get shaking what your momma gave ya and let's get stuck in.
