Mojito De Mentha

"Friends of ours made these for us as the prelude to a hot summer evening, and with one drink, this became our favorite new cocktail! Very fresh and light and a great way to use the mint from your garden. (From the cookbook, Viva la Vida by Rafael Palomino.)"

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!! Gosh, splendid!!! You know what, I love everything about this recipe: Its sooooo easy to fix, it tastes so good(fit for a king or queen), smells hauntingly tempting and the colour is pretty too! Since I did not have Sprite or 7 Up soda, I topped it up with chilled Mountain Dew. This was really really refreshing!! I served it to our family friends' who have flown in last week from India and they went crazy over this; they kept asking for me. I had so much fun making this over and over again! Thank you for a DELIGHTFUL REFRESHING UNIQUE drink!

    Thanks for the recipe; we love to make these for guests! We tried Mojitos while on vacation in Cuba and fell in love with them. Very refreshing!
