Hello GraceLaced friends! I am Kirstin, half of the sister team that blogs at kojodesigns and Shiny Happy Sprinkles, and I am beyond thrilled to be here today. See, today three of my favorite things- summer, yummy drinks, and Ruth's blog- are all wrapped up in one strawberry mango mojito recipe. It's like a trifecta of fabulous!
Besides summer, and Ruth's blog, and yummy drinks in general, I should confess- I also love mojitos. Love them. I think mint and lime were made to go together. And I lo-ove adding fruit, like blueberries, to this yummiest of drink concoctions.
Strawberry Mango Mojito Recipe-
1 lime, juiced
10 mint leaves
1/4 cup strawberries
1 mashed mango
1 tablespoon sugar
1 shot rum
3/4 cup club soda
DIRECTIONS- Add lime juice, mint leaves, strawberries, mangoes and sugar to the bottom of a cup. Muddle, mashing the berries, the mangos and the mint leaves. Add rum and club soda. Mix well and serve.
Also, and I highly recommend this, if you want to make a whole pitcher of strawberry mango mojitos, use this blueberry mojito recipe and sub out strawberries and mangoes for the blueberries. Deliciousness!
Thanks for inviting us Ruth! GraceLaced friends, stop by and say hi anytime!
*Update: Friends, it is not my intention to offend or cause anyone to stumble. I do not take our Christian liberty lightly, and am not flippant about the issue of alcohol. Today's guest post is a lovely recipe for a summertime celebration or dinner party. I'm sure it is delicious without alcohol (I make "mocktails" all the time!:) ). I realize we may agree to disagree on this issue, but please refrain from arguing about the issue of alcohol in the comments. Thank you, dear readers!
“The end or purpose of Christian liberty is not to smoke or drink; liberty is given for the pursuit of holiness. Those who wave the banner of Christian liberty so that they might do whatever they might want to do have not understood the doctrine at all. The point is not to drink or smoke or dance according to our own whims, in the light of our own wisdom, but to do whatever we do before the Lord, with the increase of joy and holiness obvious to all. Our guide on how this is to be done is the Bible, and not our pet evangelical traditions. And this is why the mature may drink wine to the glory of God, and the same cannot be applied to young men who may be more concerned about looking cool than being holy.” -Douglas Wilson, Future Men.
