Oh Baby, it’s coooold outside! Yes, I know. Then what the heck am I doing posting something made for the summer months?
Because it’s really good!
And we have to take into consideration our fellow neighbors, friends, and company who don’t drink coffee, or tea, or cocoa, or eggnog…hey, wait! Eggnog is chilled! I rest my case.
Surfing Pinterest led me to the creator of this drink, Heather Ross. Her husband made it Mojito style, with rum and mint leaves. And you can certainly do that. But I went the virgin route, since I wanted something my kids could enjoy. They loved it! And I do believe this is the first time they actually tasted soda, but what the heck…it’s Christmas time.
