Woohoo St. Patrick's Day! Gotta love a day where the color of choice is green. So obvi I wanted to make a green cocktail to celebrate the day, but I wanted it to still be light and fresh, unlike some other drinks of choice on St. Paddy's (I'm lookin at you, green beer :P). I found this recipe on The Cookie Rookie and was instantly sold - mint, pear, mojito??? YES PLZ!
Ok ok I know mojitos are NOT Irish, but this one is green so that's good enough!!
Isn't it such a pretty drink? It tastes just as good too.
I was also psyched that I got to use my new rattan cupholders from Boticalove - aren't they darling?
