If you like a classic mojito, try this a spin. This Lavender Mojito is a breeze to make, and it’s also super refreshing and delightful!
Hello everyone – happy Saturday! Normally, I don’t post on weekends. But since this week I’ve been spending too much time (And apparently throwing too many tantrums lol) because of technical issues, I decided to have another delightful recipe.
It’s already September, and all of a sudden, I started feeling fall vibes. I mean one day it was super hot and humid, and now it’s so refreshing. Indeed, I love this time of the year, but it was just such a rapid change.
But even though the days (and particularly nights) are getting fresher, there’s still a room for some refreshments. Besides, I am not moving to anything apple, pumpkin, anyways, so you’re kind of stuck with me guys for another few weeks :)
Also, it’s Labour Day and the extended weekend, and I bet many of you will have a party or picnic. I know for many people it’s the weekend they are wrapping up their grilling season. Now, I am checking our forecast for the entire weekend, and I assume David is going to use his grill a lot lol.
Jokes apart, I believe this Lavender Mojito would be a perfect drink to celebrate Labour Day (and calendar fall, too.) It’s super refreshing, subtly herbal, and deliciously sweet. Just keep in mind you will need to make this Lavender Simple Syrup first.
And you can also check other fancy cocktails for your party.
