Someone's In The Kitchen With Moozie

BOOOOOOOOZE!

My back hurts after cooking for the better part of 12 hours, and I could really use a bit of booze.

Booze, alas, makes me verrrrrry relaxed, and that's probably not the best thing for me to be for at least another 12 hours.

In the meantime, I'm dreaming of Mojitos:

3 oz light rum (Bacardi Silver is nice)
Juice of 1 lime (Fresh lime, please!)
2 tsp sugar
3 sprigs of fresh mint
1 sprig of fresh Stevia (a sweet herb)
Soda water

Toss the mint, stevia, and sugar into a mixing glass with a splash of the soda water. Gently muddle them until the sugar is dissolved and you can smell the mint. Make sure the mint is well bruised.

Add the lime juice and the rum, shake well with ice, strain and serve over cracked ice. Garnish with mint and lime.

Or you could do it the way Stina and I do: muddle a handful of mint and some sugar in the bottom of a pitcher. Wedge up some limes, squeeze them into the pitcher, then toss the limes in. Throw in a handful of cracked ice, pour in about 1/2 a pitcher of rum and 1/4 pitcher of soda water. Stir well. Sit in the back yard and drink until the pitcher is gone.

Repeat as needed! (It's 87 degrees in Toledo at 9:30PM. I expect we'd need to repeat it a lot!)

  • I'm watching Alton eat cobbler on tv. Now that's food porn! So I was wondering...do you have any cobbler recipes?

  • I had mojitos last night. Unfortunately not in your back yard but they did accompany a very good fajita platter.

    We must do that again some time.
