With myself and my friends now being in our mid (to late) twenties other than the odd big occasion like a special birthday, we don’t tend to have massive nights out. I’m not a fan of spending loads of money to stand in a sweaty club, be leered at by creepy men and queue for hours just for a drink. So we’re much more likely to stay in and have a night in together. Usually said night would include snacks, PJ’s, movies and cocktails because who said you have to be dressed up to enjoy a lovely drink?!
I never used to be a huge fan of rum but I’ve loved Mojitos for bloody ages and it’s one of the choice drinks that we will knock up on a Saturday evening. I recently spoke to the wonderful team at Taste Cocktails* who offered to send me a Mojito cocktail making kit and of course I wasn’t going to turn that down. The box came super quickly and was so well presented with a booklet explaining how to make the cocktail alongside a whole host of ingredients to make the perfect cocktail.
I never actually knew how much went into making the perfect Mojito, and I definitely haven’t been making them right for a long time. When I went away for bank holiday last weekend I took the set so that I could share the drinks with my friends although they didn’t get too much of a look in! Everything was explained so well and with the help of the instruction book the Mojito’s we made were pretty near perfect. If we were sat in the sunshine on a beach then they’d be spot on.
