BYCU: Mojito Time?
I can’t say there’s a lot of drinking on my horizon. I’m still detoxing from Vegas, and I’m rattled with allergies right now, the effects of which mimic COVID symptoms, which makes me persona non grata at the local watering holes.
On top of that, hell season starts tonight with Tess’ first tennis match. It should be a fairly temperate hell season, though. I have no high school seniors and Max opted to get his first real job instead of doing a sport. When you have only one kid in a sport, you kind of look forward to the events, knowing you won’t have six a week for the next six weeks.
So even though there’s no drinking on my horizon, the garden is calling me to the tempter. I’ve been wanting to make the ultimate mojito, basing it on what I drank in Miami two years ago. On a trip to Little Havana, I bought a mojito, and it was amazing. It was filled with greens (looked like seaweed, to be frank). I think the greens were mint, cilantro, and basil but I’m not sure.
Well, this spring, I’m gonna try to find out. My mint is thriving, the cilantro is volunteering all over the place (I try to let all my greens go to seed and blow all over the place; it’s part of my “wild garden” effort, which I plan to write about extensively later). I also have basil that I’ve grown from seed in my grow station.
I’m greatly tempted to take my first stab at a killer mojito recipe later tonight and start tracking the results.
I’ll keep y’all apprised.
