Nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, refreshing summer drink. The past two months have been very challenging for me – carrying difficult and unpleasant loads. Trying to recover. Trying to find the time to practice the things I love to do, like drinking my favorite wines and making cool cocktails, lol.
I would like to share with you a homemade drink I call Jade Skirt Mojito. A delicious and satisfying mojito made with fresh mint leaves, lime, Kiwifruit, white rum, sugar, Midori Melon Liqueur and club soda.
Jade Skirt Mojito
6 mint leaves
1/2 lime (freshly squeezed)
2 teaspoons of sugar
2 1/2 teaspoon of Midori Melon Liqueur
1 1/2 shots of white rum
1/2 cup of club soda
Muddle the freshly squeezed lime, sugar, Kiwifruit and mint leaves in a mortar and pestle or you can use the end of a wooden spoon and small jug. Pour into a glass of ice. Add the Midori Melon, white rum, club soda and stir. Garnish with mint leaves and serve.
I would like to share a refreshing summer cocktail I put together called Lush Chiaro, lol. When I’m not drinking wine, this is the most delicious thing to drink during my home events or backyard barbecues. The recipe makes one serving, but you can adjust accordingly and make more.
1 cherry (remove stem and seed)
1/2 medium lemon, cut 1 wedge
1 shot of Ciroc Summer Citrus
1/2 cup of pineapple mango juice, or as needed
1/2 cup of ice cubes, or as needed
1. Use a mortar and pestle to crush the cherry, strawberry and lemon wedge. If you don't have a mortar and pestle, use the end of a wooden spoon instead and a small bowl.
2. Remove the lemon wedge from the mortar.
3. Add the crushed cherry, strawberry with lemon juices, 1 shot of Ciroc Summer Citrus and 1/2 cup of pineapple mango juice to the cup of ice cubes.
4. Stir, taste and enjoy!
