Tantalizing Strawberry Mojito




It's summer time and we are going to take you on a fabulous journey to a nearly deserted island in the Caribbean.  Setting sun, sand, incredible cocktails and tranquility are the order of the day.  Relaxing on the beach listening to the sounds of the ocean.  You hear the waves breaking and beach around you is still.  You smell the salt in the air the wind gently caresses your cheek.

Silence, you, the Caribbean and a fruitful Strawberry Mojito.  The ultimate relaxation.  This is my island, the place I come to when I need to unwind from the stresses that life brings.  I invite you to join me.  So, slip off your heels and slip into this delicious cocktail!

Flavors from delectable red strawberries, tangy lime and cool mint marry together to create a tantalizing Caribbean cocktail.  Sweet, cool, tart and bright; almost everything you might want from a cocktail.  Except a second one.
