Thirsty Thursday--Frozen Mojitos

This is not the cocktail that I was planning on posting this week,
but I just had to share it because it is so, so good.
It's perfect for this very hot weather.
And a super cold, refreshing cocktail is definitely perfect for celebrating July 4th.

One of my friends mentioned making this delectable cocktail and described it so perfectly,
that I just couldn't get it out of my mind.
I had to make it.

I'm so glad that I did.

If you love mojitos, you are going to love this one.
Cold and refreshing with a little kick.
