Raspberry Pineapple Mojito

Yesterday I had to work.  Boo.  Guess what the boys did.  They went swimming, played, and had lunch at Grammy’s house.  Which is great for them, but left me dreaming of an afternoon by the pool with a cocktail.  *sigh*  So when I got home from work, I whipped an easy to make fruity mojito to make up for my lack of pool time.

This mojitio is delicious!  I don’t like mine overly sweet, so I didn’t add any simple syrup  But the fruit add some natural sugars that sweeten the drink just enough for me.  If you like the sweetness, add 1/2 ounce simple syrup to your drink.

I also have to confess the main reason I went pineapple on this drink wasn’t because Mike brought me home a new rum to try, but that I had a gallon ziploc bag of frozen cut up pineapple.  I had bought Eddie 2 pineapples (on sale) and cut them up.  While he normally inhales any fruit within arms reach, he refused to eat any of the pineapple I bought.  WTH?  Which more or less means you should all be expecting more pineapple around here soon.

Let’s drink!

    G’Day from Oz! I’ve just pinned that yummy drink to my It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere board-it looks delicious! I hope you enjoyed one (or two?) of those last night!
