Hi.  My name is Nicole and i’m an indulger.

Lately, my indulgence of choice is a “Mojito”.  A refreshing drink, made with rum, sugar, mint leaves, lime and carbonated (or sparkling) water.  It’s the perfect way to cool down on a hot Summer afternoon, as well as a great evening cocktail.

While driving to a bar in South Miami with an old friend two nights ago, i turned to him and said “if you ever want a great Mojito, go to Trattoria Sole’ “. He replied, “have you ever tried to translate the word ‘Mojito’ into English? It means ‘Little Wet One’.”  Indeed, it does…

Places i recommend in Miami for great tasting “Little Wet Ones” are:

Talavera Cocina Mexicana, Coral Gables – Mango Mojito
Sugarcane Raw Bar, Wynwood/Midtown area – The Original Mojito
Trattoria Sole’, South Miami – Coconut Mojito

OR try a homemade Minty Mojito using the recipe below!
