THE Dragonberry Mojito

In life I have found my defining moments are rarely seen "in the moment" but rather in hindsight.  I mean, who knew that when my friend Jessyca said I should go to The Conch Republic in Key West for a Mojito that a whole new era would begin in my life. Seriously, WHO KNEW?

Well, it did change somehow that day I had my first Dragonberry Mojito and for some unknown reason it sparked something in me.... and it became the seed for Facebook Groups, party themes and an endless quest for new variations on my new found friend The Mojito.

And so, here I am 3 years later starting a blog about food, drinks and entertaining and as I struggle for a starting point it seems clear that I should hearken back to the Dragonberry Mojito, which is really where this started.... this being the need to quest out new recipes and share them with anyone who would pretend they cared.

And so, I introduce [or reintroduce if you're an old friend].... 

                                        The Dragonberry Mojito

2 parts Bacardi Dragonberry Rum
1 part simple syrup
8 mint leaves
3 sliced strawberries
4 lime wedges

Muddle to perfection
fill appropriate glass with ice
top with club soda and....

aaahhhhh, it's summer :)

so, most people just have the drink, pay their bill & leave..... I decided to refocus my whole existence....

and so it begins.....

*invitation by my awesome friend Sylvia at Paper Dance ...she's a genius.
