    These sound soooo good! I love mojitos. I’ve actually tried one that was a mix of a lemon drop and a mojito before, and that was pretty good too. I might have to grab a bottle of rum and some mint leaves and try this out!

    I love a good mojito.

    Tip: don’t order one when the bar is really crowded. Some bartenders tend to skimp om the muddling part to save time when they’re in a hurry.
