The first day of summer has gone and past and now we can officially say summer is here and here to stay. During the sweltering hot summer days my husband I find our selves sipping on mojitio’s. I’m not a huge fan of the traditional mojito, so I decided to make an extra-summertime like drink; Strawberry Mojito. I feel that the strawberry mojito is refreshing and screams summer. My husband on the other hand doesn’t care how is mojito is made–as long as it’s a mojito! On evenings that we actually have a breeze (which are few and far between) we sit out on the patio and sip on this dreamy summertime cocktail.
