Bon Weekend, Plus Couture Cocktails

Summer is in full swing and, for now, the temps are in the low 80’s.  For me, this is the perfect temperature to enjoy the outdoors.  Today, I will be taking my children to the pool and you can find me lounging in the lazy river.
I would love to have brunch sitting on this balcony, oui?
Couture Cocktails
Strawberry Mojitos

For each mojito, you will need

4-5 fresh strawberries, depending on size
Small handful of fresh mint leaves
3 oz simple syrup (even amounts of sugar and water, heated until the sugar melts, and cooled to room temperature)
2 oz rum
1 1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
Club soda
Lime slices

Place strawberries, mint, and some ice (crushed ice works best) in a tall glass. Muddle the ingredients together with the back of a spoon (or a muddler if you have one.) Add simple syrup, rum, and lime juice. Pour in enough club soda to fill the glass. Give the mixture a stir, and garnish with fresh strawberries and lime slices.
Bon weekend!  I hope it’s beautiful where you are. 
xoxo, B
