Mojitos in Summer—Need I Say More?

Tank tops, shorts, sunglasses, hats, and sand—this can only mean one thing: summer is here! I generally love the warm part of the year and the sun-kissed skin it comes with. This year, however, I feel like it's getting warmer and warmer—and warmer still! Let's face it: the temperature is too high, and it is too hot! I ended up staying indoors and cranking up the air conditioner for over a month now. My husband saw how annoyed I have become over it and knew that he had to do something before I went ballistic. He handed me my swimsuit, a bottle of sunscreen, and a towel. I was not able to hold back a really wide smile when he headed for the kitchen and started rummaging the cabinets. Knowing him, he is probably thinking of getting me some food. Yes, food has that effect on me. It was really hot outside. I set up the pool benches and the big umbrella we have while I waited for him. My husband came out from the house with two jars on a tray. I basically jumped and clapped when I saw what he was carrying. The jar had in it some cherries, a few slices of lime, a few leaves of mint, some red liquid, a colorful straw, and a big chunk of ice. When my husband handed me a jar, I had to use two hands because it was filled to the brim. The ice-cold jar felt so refreshing that I was thinking of actually hugging it. I took a sip, and just like that, I seem to have forgotten why I was so annoyed a while back. I ended up spending the afternoon with my husband by our pool. It was a genius the way he made the drink. He loves cherries, and I am betting that the handful he used in the beverage came from our yard. I, on the other hand, just can't live without lime. It's my favorite ingredient, my favorite drink, and my favorite flavor. Yes, we have one growing in our yard, as well. The mint, the ice, and the alcohol—it all works! I now know what to do when the blazing heat starts bearing down: turn that annoyingly hot day into a relaxing summer afternoon. The trick is in the combination of cherry, lime, mint, and making the mojitos in a big jar. Oh, and don't forget the ice! With this drink in my hand, summer is shaping up to be my favorite time of the year again.
