September is here, which naturally means summer is on it’s way out! This also means I need to start preparing my wardrobe to dress like Kanye in GQ (this is so happening folks). Fall is one of my favorite seasons. Mainly because I feel like you have more versatility in outfits. Also because Starbucks starts rolling out the seasonal beverages, as well as the most important of all… I can bust out my beloved crewneck sweatshirt collection on the regular! All reasons to love the fall. So in order to be prepared for all this greatness that the fall season is going to bestow upon us. The only way to get the most out of it is to write some goals down. So for September mine are the following:
Summer is in full swing. Which means hanging outdoors, soaking up the sun, and flourishing in the long days. This also means….DRINKS! Who doesn’t like the perfect summer beverages that’s also super refreshing? This weekend @Papidrinkswine and I decided to experiment with a mutual favorite, The Mojito. Hailing from the island of all things fine (hello) Cuba. This mix of limes,sugar, mint, and seltzer water is a good time. This time around we decided to make Watermelon flavored ones and get real fancy with it. I must say, YUM! We made a watermelon puree ,of watermelon soaked in mint liqueur, fresh mint leaves and lime. We used simple syrup instead of sugar and watermelon juice on top of tonic water. We also got our Pintrest on and froze watermelon and mint in ice cubes (because we like cute shit). Let me tell you it was SO good. We chugged those things down so fast we were tipped in no time. Try it out and tell me what you think. Also check out this article of other cool Mojito recipes and enjoy responsibly!
