Summer Cocktail Fun: Icy Mojito Recipe #letscocktail

I recently took part in TheBar.com challenge to shake up the nations drinking habits and make a beautiful cocktail while throughly enjoying it. What a challenge right?
We were given the option of several different cocktails to rustle up. My lucky poison was the Icy Mojito Recipe. I’d never actually tried a mojito before I usually keep it simple with a little glass of WooWoo (Yum-Yum) 

The reason behind this challenge is because cocktails are bang on trend especially now we’re in the summer season, but our favourite depends on where we live with northerners going for a cheeky G&T and south and is preferring a Pimms number one and lemonade

Icy Mojito Recipe

As part of its mission to shake up Sama the bar.com has found that drinkers in London and Scotland favour and Mojito, the Welsh can’t get enough of G&T and the Midlands are well … split down the middle equally favouring Pimms and lemonade and G&T
 
Summer get-togethers are no longer a run-of-the-mill occasion either with more than half of those survey claiming that the holiday period is a perfect time for drinking cocktails and on failing that cocktails are the perfect barbecue drink as the nation was shaking up or social occasions by hosting more of our own cocktail parties and Londoners are leading the pack with nearly half planning to host or attending a cocktail party this summer
