In the summer nothing says refreshing like a traditional Mint grapefruit lemon mojito recipe made with freshness from my home garden. In this post I share the recipe along with some growing tips.
Traditional Mint Grapefruit Lemon Mojito Recipe
This drink is organic and non GMO project certified. I was really excited to find this recipe today because it is the end of may and I have MINT that needs harvested out in the containers. Mint is an amazing herb to grow but be sure to keep it in containers because it can be totally invasive if you put it directly in the ground. You can also grow lemons – mine are in containers that I winter over in my greenhouse each winter. Let’s get to the recipe because I need to get back outside and work in my garden that needs some hydrating due to the lack of rain this weekend.
This recipe is a spin off of one I had at a great restaurant in La Jolla, California. Photos and recipe are mine!
Mint for your Mojito
I love growing mint but years ago I found out the hard way why you shouldn’t grow mint directly in the ground. Be sure to grow your mint in containers so they still contained!
I hope you share with me what you are growing and how you are staying hydrated as we head into Summer. I love connecting with my readers so be sure to comment below or connect on my contact page featured on this website.
Happy Summer Entertaining,
