Mojito Time

So once again I am fully content on doing nearly nothing with my day except lounging around and watching the television.  I decided to grab my bottle of Appleton Estate VX and mix up a few limes and mint and just be a layabout for a while.

Appleton's premium is some pretty good stuff.  Crisp and dry that is a good definition of what a dark, non-spiced rum should be.  Very sweet and spicy on the nose and light bodied, smooth with good notes of oak and toasted spice.  But not spiced.  Tis a curious bastard it is.

But muddled with some mint and lime it can be such a relaxing beverage for a miserably hot Louisiana night.

Hope you guys enjoy something nice and sweet and cold today.
Bon Boire!


  1. oh sweet jesus those are good!!

  2. never heard of this until now, but I don't want it either way.

  3. Yum! I have a mojito waiting for me on Tuesday night when I have a little time off. Yahoo! Now, you have me wondering if I should find a time to have it before then? Naw! I wouldn't have time to savor it and it really deserves mulling over on a hot night.

  4. Can't complain with a good mojito. There is a bar near me that does them cheaply on Monday's, good times.

  5. realy ccccoollll .........jus drink n see it
