Recipe by SReiff
The flavors of a classic Mojito (mint and lime) are blended into a refreshing slushy. This is a delicious and easy to make cocktail. For a large party, triple the recipe and store the slushy in a pitcher in the freezer for up to an hour. Stir to blend before serving guests. Adapted from Bon Appetit.
