What is your favorite summertime Cocktail? It is no shocker to anyone who knows me that mine is a Mojito. My husband likes them too. I like to have a nice refreshing cocktail waiting for him on a hot evening when he gets home from work. That is always what I try to do. Think of what I would like, and then do it for him.
Romantic Tip: Have a "giving" day. One of you agrees to completely give, with no expectations about what you'll get in return. From breakfast in bed to an out-of-the-ordinary treat to sex later that night, one of you shows your love for the other and thereby increases intimacy for both of you.
To make ONE Mojito:
½ lime, cut in wedges
10 mint leaves
2 tbsp agave nectar
45 ml Barcardi Rum
125 ml soda water
1 cup ice cubes
extra mint and slice of lime for garnish
Put the mint leaves and the lime wedges in a Mojito glass. Crush the mint and lime together with a muddler to release their juices. I got these really cute Mojito glasses that came with a muddler that fits perfectly. If you don't have a muddler, you can use a mortar and pestle and then poor the juices into the glass.
Add the agave and muddle again. Do not strain the mix.
Fill the glass with the ice cubes.
Add the rum.
And fill the glass with soda water.
Decorate with a slice of lime and more mint leaves.
