Life, style & food in the District
It’s true. Come summer time, my most frequently uttered phrase is “mojito me.”
My obsession with the incredibly refreshing beverage is not nearly as bad in the city as it is when I travel someplace tropical. (Mostly because I cannot afford to be in love with a $14 drink, even if it is served on a beautiful District rooftop.) …. But once my tush hits a stool in a swim-up bar somewhere sunny, it’s all over. I completely surrender to the power of the mojito.
I love them all: the classic mojito, the watermelon mojito, the passion fruit mojito…. But most of all, I love my ginger beer mojito.
Think of this drink as a summery twist on a dark and stormy. It’s spicy (thanks to the ginger), refreshing and minty – And best of all, you don’t even need to bother with making a simple syrup!
So bottoms-up to summertime and another way to sip yourself down to the tropics.
