This refreshing mojito was inspired by Mother Earth herself and served up in some fun mushroom glasses my sweet friend got me since she knew I wanted to make some fun cocktails during April for Earth Month.
The Earth Day-Inspired Mojito is a delightfully green cocktail that is sweet, slightly sour, and super yummy. It’s color and taste are perfect for Spring/Summer. If you need another springtime cocktail, you should definitely try my Cucumber Gin and Tonic.
There is Midori and Apple Pucker (Sour Apple Liqueur) in it, plus naturally green ingredients like mint and lime.
I wish. That glow comes from the lights I used in the shot.
While this glass may look small, it’s a 6oz-8oz drink, depending on how much soda water you top it off with.
For those who make this refreshing mojito, please be sure to tag me on social media so I can see how yours turned out! Even if you don’t have random mushroom glasses, you can still get creative with your presentation/garnishes. Above all, have fun with it!
