When I blogged about the amazing tropical bar cart set up from OKL last time I said I was off to search for some tropical drink recipes that would be refreshing and delish!
I kept my word!
First, I headed to a favorite tropical spot -
The Florida Keys.
Yes, it really is that beautiful
These photos have not been edited.
Just iphone pics.
Then Mollie and I set off to find the "best in The Keys" of one of our favorite drinks -
There's nothing like it on a hot, hot day!
We did our due diligence. We sipped in several picturesque locations...
And then we discovered the best one ever!
We went back again - just to confirm and to be sure there was honesty in reporting.
The best Mojito was at Lazy Days in Islamorada.
And the bartender willingly shared the secret!
She uses Parrot Bay Key Lime Rum.
Using this rum cuts out the need for simple syrup
(which sometimes makes Mojitos too sweet and #calories)
And it is sooooo easy.
And light and refreshing.
All you need to do is:
1. Muddle fresh mint in the bottom of the glass
2. Fill a tall glass with ice.
3. Add Captain Morgan's Parrot Bay Key Lime Rum and fill with club soda.
4. Garnish with a lime.
And just so you don't think we just ran around sipping Mojitos all day long- we found an amazing Smoked Wahoo Fish Dip at the Zane Grey Lounge.
Delicious and look at that presentation.
If only going to Happy Hour and reporting back was a full time job!
