We spell “Refreshing” like M-O-J-I-T-O ! Shaken,not stirred, please! This drink will surely take you back to the dog days of summer. It’s important to make this recipe with freshly squeezed juice- you don’t want to miss out on all of the benefits of freshly squeezed. Be wary when shopping in stores, “100% natural” juice in grocery stores may not be as natural as you think. Remember, 100% natural doesn’t always mean 100% fresh when it hits the shelves of your local market.
