cold mojitos. hot daze.

it's so dang-dillio hot outside.

the kinda HOT that when you open the door to check the temperature outside...

well,

you just gasp and moan and go back in, hot.











a nice refreshing mojito

helps.

it certainly doesn't hurt.


served in funky acrylic glasses.




garnished with fresh mint from the garden.

of course.



and the cutest sugar cubes you ever did see.

i like it sweet.




refreshing.



it helps.

a little.

Mohitos are my absolute favourite drink. I have to really watch myself as they go down so easily in this heat....

You certainly stayed cool with those light and airy pics. Nice job, and stay cool, but not so cool that the photos get blurry ;)

Heat or no heat, you still create some of the most beautiful images I've ever seen.
Stay cool, Baby!

Beautiful picture Erin! So cute. Love the bouquet and your drink sounds yummy! You can make the simplest thing beautiful! I'm dying in this Kansas humidity.

Almost every night I think " gee I'm going to make a mojito" then I never do.
Now you're really taunting me here!
Those bee sugars are too cute just like your pic on your sidebar!

those little sugar cubes are just darling!! do you buy them locally or did you make them yourself? mmmm mojitos! I had one while on my trip and although the picture nor the cup is a good looking as yours, the taste was still refreshing! We visited Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana and had mojitos on the veranda while it poured down rain. really was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. cheers to staying cool!!

xoxo,
Bonnie
