One cocktail that just screams,"summer is finally here!" is a mojito. Because we grow mint in our backyard there is usually not much of an excuse to not make one on a warm sunny day.
Last weekend the sun finally made a showing, we had taken the bully for a stroll up to the Proctor Farmer's Market where local strawberries were in abundance and we got a call from a friend who was looking to hang out on our sunny patio for the afternoon which inspired this cocktail concoction.
We had some coconut rum ( not sure why or where it came from?) and the local strawberries and when we saw the mint we thought, mmmm....let's give a coconut, strawberry mojito a try.
Needless to say it was fantastic! Refreshingly minty with a hint of fresh strawberry.
