Mojito Float Recipe

Recipes, SJM ShopJessica PeddicordComment

Let's ring in the first day (and first Thursday!) of March with a fun new cocktail recipe - an incredibly fun and tasty mojito float! Mojitos are some of my absolute favorite cocktails (give me all the muddled mint!!), and any excuse to add ice cream to a drink is good in my book.

The weather is just starting to get a bit warmer here in Dallas, so it's as good a time as any to start thinking of fun spring-y drinks.

Who else flipped the page of their 2018 Cocktail Calendar today? If so, let's toast each other with a virtual cocktail hour tonight to celebrate!

BRUNCH PAIRING SUGGESTION

What could be a more perfect pairing for a mojito float than a key lime tart?! If you're already going to be indulging in sherbet with brunch, you might as well go all-out-sweets with a side of key lime!
