Greek Style Mojito Drink

Happy Cinco De Mayo friends! Are you celebrating today? πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ‡²πŸ‡½πŸ‡²πŸ‡½

I have been testing literally 300 + recipes for my next cookbook. One of my favorite recipes in this book is this very own mojito with a twist. I got the inspiration from Crete while sitting on the beach drinking a Greek-style mojito. It was really tasty and I decided to bring back a little bit of Crete with me. I hope you enjoy this tasty cocktail. (Perfect for those hot Summer days that are coming soon.)  🌿🌿🌿
