The Faux-jito

Last summer, we took advantage of our mint plant bush and experimented with a variety of mojitos. This was not in the cards for me this summer (what can I say, I'm not a big FAS fan), but I HAVE been enjoying the "faux-jito" that we came up with earlier this summer. I almost ALMOST can be fooled into thinking I'm drinking the real thing.

The Faux-jito

Mint
Lime
Trader Joe's French Market Sparkling Limeade
Ice

Muddle mint leaves with fresh squeezed lime juice. Fill glass with ice. Pour limeade on top. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Pregnant women everywhere, rejoice!
