mojito? mojito! MOJITO!
no.. no one get my OC reference? should i just stick to gilmore girls? okay, so it's pie day & here i am making us some fancy blackberry mojitos to kick off this gloomy monday. i don't know, i don't think i will ever nail one of these trendy or national food days. with how hot the weather has been here lately, i have to accept that winter is over & embrace spring to it's fullest.. starting with these fruity cocktails & fruit pies galore. as if a regular mojito wasn't good enough, i decided to crush some fresh blackerries into the mix. it makes more the most beautiful ombre drink! & everyone knows how much i love my ombre. serving it in the commons hand blown glassware just sweetens the deal even more!
