Refreshing Spicy Ginger Mojito

Ginger MojitoMy husband was a bartender while in school and he still enjoys creating a signature drink for each of our Gr8 Dinners. This delicious beverage is a twist on the classic Mojito. He created this for our “Memories from Our Mother’s Kitchen” Gr8 Dinner last year.

Normally everyone has one of the signature drinks then moves on to their favorite libation. But this Ginger Mojito is so tasty, that many of the Gr8 guests drank this all evening…It was a hit!
