    I love this drink! I have to admit though I just couldn't make a mojito with rye whiskey so I substituted it with rum. It was wonderful. A great idea to use lemonade! This was a great recipe find! Thank you. Made near the end of ZWT4 while traveling around with my Babes!

    I bought a little bottle of whiskey and finally gave this a go. I was afraid of the whiskey but with all the lemonade and the lime juice, it was really a second player. Not to mention the lime flavor. Fun garnish with the blueberries. I might try this again later with rum. Thanks. Made for ZWT4.

    I used 8 blueberries. I didn't add a splash of soda water. I loved the taste and the color of it. I didn't want to take a photo but when I saw how good looking it was, I did a skewer of blueberries as a garnish. Thanks Ev. Made for the Babes of ZWT4

<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
