Refreshing Vodka Bucket

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by cooking-BAG

This is a recipe to share with close friends, because it is put together in an ice bucket, and everyone grabs their respective colored straw to use. It is a hit at parties or picnics, as it gets passed around to be shared by all. It was originally made with Gin, but that kicks my bucket, so I use Vodka. The ingredients are layered with ice and fresh mint leaves and it is best if it sits covered for a couple of hours.

This was very good. I had a hard time getting a good enough picture for some reason . I suggest to crush the mint before you put them in, so you get more of a Mojito taste. Made and Reviewed for PAC Fall 2008.
