Mojito Monday recipeYep it's Monday. The day which makes most people sigh as they leave the fun of the weekend behind them and head into work for the week. Before I started blogging/freelancing I used to get that sinking feeling on the walk to work, already planning what fun I could have come Friday. So I started a little tradition at home, for those Mondays that were particularly hard to get into I would celebrate the start of the week with Mojito Monday.

When Paul and I travelled to Rome – pre-child – we really got into our mojito vibe, having fun exploring the city by day and partying by night. So I thought we'd bring a little holiday fun home with us and indulge with a cocktail now and again in the comfort of our flat. So when I saw thebar.com had created fun and easy Shake-Up summer cocktail videos I knew it would be fun to get involved and enjoy a mojito Monday at home. Normally we use a white rum to create our cocktail but we followed the 'No Problemo Mojito' video and tried Captain Morgan's Spice Rum to give it a touch of summer.

Mojito IngredientsSlap the mint to release the flavour

• First you need to slap the mint to release the flavour ad add to your glass

• Next add two spoons of Caster sugar to give it a sweet zing.
•  Fill your glass with ice and two parts soda water, mix well and enjoy!

The recipe is super easy to follow and we made our cocktails straight into a glass rather than jug, which we'd normally do on a weekend or when drinking with friends, but as we have a four year old to wake us up early o'clock we limit ourselves to one cocktail each on a weeknight. As Paul is travelling to Budapest today we made ours last night but I might sneak a cheeky one in tonight to ease myself into my solo parenting week. 

If you want to create your own Mojito Monday a home then you can watch the video below to see how the cocktail crashers create the perfect summer drink or head over to thebar.com for more cocktail ideas.
