Come Party With Me: Independence Day — Drinks


On a hot day, there's nothing quite like a tall glass filled with a tart mojito. Although the drink was created in Cuba in 1943, it's now considered a classic cocktail by America's top bartenders.

Since it's one of my favorite Summer sips, I'm serving them at my Independence Day party. While there's plenty of variations, from cherry to mango, I'm serving the traditional rum, lime, and mint version. The party is sure to last several hours, so don't forget to stock up on beer, soda, and wine.

For the mojito recipe,

my husband tried making his own the other night because I was too busy painting to make him one and his went horribly awry. Too much rum and not even a drop of seltzer water :\ . dunno why, but I love drinking these things. refreshing and not overly strong (when made right) and fresh mint just adds that zing.

I must do something wrong when I make them. Mine always taste AWFUL. I don't know what it is.
