We do not have cocktails often, but when we do I like something tropical, fruity and definitely refreshing. A Minty Mojito is just perfect !

These are especially good with some sundowner snacks at the end of a busy day, or on a Saturday afternoon.

Although to me, a cocktail is best when you enjoy one lounging next to the swimming pool, or the beach.

Some days I prefer a nice colored cocktail (see my BLUE HAWAIIAN) and other times a crystal clear cocktail with added fruits and yes, even vegetables.

The Celery serves two purposes in this Minty Mojito recipe – great look for garnishing. But I also like to bruise the bottom tips a little and get the Celery flavor incorporated into the whole taste. Absolutely delicious !

Before adding the Mint Leaves I also give them a light pinch to release even more flavor.

The Lime*** pieces on the other hand I only squeeze the juice from half and add the remaining pieces as is to rather use either the Celery stalks or the straw and give the pieces a little stab every now and then whilst sipping. That way you control just how limey your drink turns out.
