The Best Mojito You'll Ever Make!

The best mojito recipe you'll ever make! My delicious mojito is made with a different way of muddling your mint leaves, which gives you a super flavorful drink! My top shelf mojito is made with high quality ingredients like fresh mint, fresh lime, top shelf rum, and sparkling lime water. My method takes a little bit of time to prepare, but it is so worth it!
