Summer is my favorite season, and I enjoy making the most of it with light, refreshing drinks. I discovered this recipe while browsing Pinterest. Here’s my spin for tonight’s libation.
Here’s what you need:
1 ounce lime juice (I use bottled)
6 fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup white wine (I’m using Chardonnay)
How to make it:
Muddle your mint leaves and lime juice in a shaker. Add your wine, fill with ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a glass, and top with seltzer.
It’s tasty, especially if you love mojitos. I found that a 1/2 cup of wine was too little, and made a second batch with 3/4 of a cup; much better. Other than that, this is a fun, easy drink to sip outside by the pool.
A wine mojito? Wine Not?
