Fresh Mojito Recipe


mojito 4

Spring has finally arrived in Chicago and all I can say is thank goodness! Spring means patio time, half marathons and MOJITOS! The mint in my backyard in Austin is going crazy so Mr. RWB brought me two bags full of fresh mint when he visited. This refreshing drink is perfect for spring or summer and super easy to make. I bought some lovely mangos at the fruit stand today…perhaps I’ll try a Mango one this week!
