It’s Cinco de Mayo!
One of my favorite foodie holidays! A day filled with avocado, tacos, spicy fresh salsa and ah yes- the margarita! I love a good fresh margarita, one with agave and fresh lime, on the rocks with a salted rim, oh YUM!
This year, no margaritas for this momma as baby#3 is on the way! That kind of thing is frowned upon believe it or not! haha!
I NEEDED something packed with lime juice, drank from a fancy glass to make me feel like I’m not COMPLETELY missing out! So I went to the fridge and grabbed what I had on hand to whip up a fresh, citrus packed, mock-tail!
Introducing the Mojito Mock-Tail. No, not very Cinco de Mayo themed, but it totally did the trick!
What do you need for this fabulous, refreshing summer mock-tail?
3 ingredients, y’all!
Mint, Lime and seltzer!
I used fresh organic mint from the garden, a lime I had on hand and organic grapefruit seltzer. Extra citrus flavor is NEVER a bad thing, am I right?
I added crushed ice to a stemless wine glass, the mint leaves and the juice from the lime as well as a few slices of lime cut into pieces and muddled all that goodness together! Then just pour the seltzer over and BOOM- Delicious, refreshing and a perfect punch of lime!
