a yummy way to beat the heat...

There's something utterly refreshing about sipping this cocktail after a long day in the heat. The combination of fresh mint, lime and rum hits the spot! I'm not opposed to an occasional drink to relax! ^_^

Here's my recipe:

juice from 1/2 of a large lime {approx. 2-3 T.} DON'T substitute bottled juice
1/2-3/4 tsp. sugar
3 large mint leaves, crushed
1 shot of spiced rum 
top off glass with ginger ale

{psst. I like the yummy hint of ginger that the gingerale lends to this drink - it's my personal twist on this drink. ^_^}

Public schools start around here tomorrow... where has the summer gone?! We'll be starting back on the 30th, but will be getting back to routine this week with earlier wake-ups and mommy planning time! 

Enjoy your Sunday!
