Day 3 Week 2 of BM #54 -
Here is a fantastic cooler appropriate for all ages on a hot summer day. This Mojito is so versatile that the ingredients can be altered as needed or as per availability.
Instead of Pineapple Juice, Mango, Orange and/or Strawberry juices can be substituted. Spinach Juice can be added as well. Each of the above juices gives a different flavor and makes a delightful drink. Even the sodas can be adjusted/substituted as needed.
My personal favorite happens to be mango-orange-spinach :). Thanks to Pooja for treating us to this fantastic coolant and also letting me take pictures.
