After one sip, you’ll be dancing in the streets of Havana.
The mojito, an iconic cocktails that was born in Cuba and exported to the rest of the world.
While I’m not a huge fan of the drink in general (can’t stand mint!), I know that thousands of people call out “mojito por favor,” across bars all over the world everyday, so the drink must not be ignored.
Today’s Boat Drink Recipe is a Blueberry Mojito, a concoction that even puts a smile on this pirate face. The recipe came from our friends at Inspiredtaste.net and credit goes to Adam and Joanne Gallagher. Adam and Joanne, I raise my glass to you.
