Treat Yourself to a Classic, Blueberry, or Tequila Mojito — You Deserve It!


Mother Nature has really turned up the temperatures and there’s no doubt that summer is in full swing. While there are certainly a lot of things to enjoy about the hot weather(including visiting the beach and getting to spend more time with the grandkids), one of the most satisfying things to do when it gets blistering hot outside is to cool off with a refreshing drink.

Mojitos are a classic alcoholic beverage and the perfect treat to sip on while you watch the sun set from your front porch. And while there’s nothing wrong with the classic (If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?), why not be bold and shake things up—literally?
