The High Heeled Kitchen Video: Fourth of July Mojito Recipe


Fourth of July: the grill is fired up, watermelon slices are chilled, and the kiddos are excited about ohhing and ahhing during the PM’s fireworks show. How about adding a Mojito to your Independence Day tradition?

I’ll be sipping this authentic and refreshing drink recipe courtesy of Mixology Mad Scientist Mcgarrit Franco of Washington, DC’s Cuba Libre.
