Irish crystal; Cuban libation

Mojitos have been a favorite of mine for a few years but I rarely found bartenders willing to make them until just recently. They would complain they just didn't have any fresh mint. Last week I found a bottle of pre-made mix from the lovely people who bring you Rose's Lime Juice. It save the trouble of muddling the mint with the sugar and juicing the limes and they are almost as good. I rubbed a few fresh mint leaves between my hands and tossed into the finished product.

This has been an evening ritual for sister Doodles and myself but we have been good and limit it to one refreshing drink before dinner. Of course, they taste all that much better in Waterford Crystal–but doesn't everything?
