Confession #81 – Tasting yummy recipes is an obvious perk of this gig as a blogger.
And when it’s naptime, but you are sipping cocktails for “work,” well, things don’t get much better than that.
During the warmer months, mint grows abundantly in our backyard and it’s the perfect addition to salads, desserts, and, my favorite, cocktails and drinks!
This refreshing mojito is a bright and sunny with addition of fresh orange and orange flavored La Croix, one of my favorite zero-calorie mixers. I like the traditional lime flavor of a mojito, but also love to balance it out with sweeter citrus. And instead of using simple sugar, I just added a few drops of liquid stevia and yum!
