In the past few years , the Mojito – a lime flavored rum cocktail garnished with fresh mint sprigs – has seemed to garner a popularity and status that rivals the oh-so-chic (thanks to the Sex and the City girls) Cosmopolitan – or “Cosmo” for short.
From an entertaining perspective, what I personally love about the mojito is the way it looks! Garnished with lime slices and fresh mint leaves, the mojito serves up a gorgeous burst of green for your party and looks fantastic as a signature drink display. For a cute gift idea, pick up a Mas Mejor Mojito Set (pictured above) from After5 – which comes with 4 traditonal tall mojito glasses, a wooden mint muddler, and a citrus knive for limes. ($39.99/set). Cheers!
