Today is National Mojito Day! Here in the Northeast it is HOT today, and perfect for a delightful summer┬áMorita. What is a Morita you ask? Well, a Morita is simply a margarita/mojito mix. This recipe development came when we had a huge garden with mint growing everywhere. We had fun experimenting with way of using the mint with this lovely drink becoming one of our favorites. Until today I have claimed to be unsure of how to make a Morita and always put my husband in charge. I think by writing a recipe for it I’m blowing my cover. I’m only willing to do this for the good of mankind. Enjoy responsibly.
