Mojitos

Because I am all about drinks of the moment, I will give my mojito recipe. One piece of advice for DC Folks - mint grows like a weed. There is no reason why you have to pay for the damn stuff when you can poach it off your neighbors. Seriously, I do it all the time and my neighbors are happy I am taking it off their hands. Please email me if you want to know all of the prime mint poaching on Capitol Hill.

3 fresh Mint sprigs
2 tsp Sugar
3 tbsp fresh Lime Juice
1 1/2 oz Light Rum
Club Soda

In a tall thin glass, put in the sugar and mint and then crush part of the mint with a fork to coat the inside. Add the lime juice and stir thoroughly. Top with ice. Add rum and mix. Top off with *chilled* club soda (or seltzer). Add a lemon slice and the remaining mint, and serve.

You can do this in big pitchers as well but people won't have the springs of mint swimming in their glasses.

Dear Blogger,

One of the article groups on my site is recipes ... while searching for details on mojito recipes, I came across your Mojitos blog.

It is widely accepted that a lot of the best articles on the internet is created by individuals who blog ... good quality content without the bias and waffle often found elsewhere.

Judging by your blog title and content I believe you are interested in http://www.blog-articles.com/category88.html, and will therefore find our recipes category to be of interest. I am frequently looking for individuals to submit articles on their pet subjects and help me to build the directory to everyone's benefit. As a contributor, you get the recognition of having your article published and seen by thousands of web users. The pride and satisfaction of seeing your article published in a prestige directory is hard to beat.

Few of us are gifted with the ability to write to professional standards of grammatical correctness ... as a result, many bloggers don't bother to have their articles published.

I accept articles written in an informal style that matches your personality and fits in with your article content. I also welcome articles that are uniquely based on your personal knowledge, experiences and opinions. All I ask is that your articles do not contain vulgar language, incite hatred or generally offensive.

There are no costs involved ... please come over and have a look at my blog articles directory for yourself.

Kind Wishes
Jane
