After a long day out in the summer sun, there is nothing better than a refreshingly cold cocktail. And in my opinion, there is no better option than a mojito :) After upgrading wine into a slushie, making Capri Suns boozy and turning avocadosandwatermelon into spiked sips, we decided to remix a classic mojito recipe with one of everyone鈥檚 favorite light and bubbly drinks 鈥 La Croix. Invite the gang over, light up the grill and relax poolside while you enjoy THE drink of summer 鈥16.
