I was given Skinnygirl Mojito as a PR sample, all opinions are my own.
If you've been reading my blog long enough, you might remember that mojitos are my very favorite cocktail, ever, on the planet. After my post a couple weeks ago in which I mentioned that I couldn't find Skinnygirl Mojito in any of my local stores, they were kind enough to send me two bottles! Of course I was thrilled, I love all the Skinnygirl cocktails I've tried so far and I love mojitos.
As with all Skinnygirl cocktails you can simply pour and serve, which is great if you need a quick pick-me-up, but I think all mojitos deserve a bit of flare! I filled a tall glass with ice, four lime slices (one half of a lime), a couple torn up mint leaves, a sprig of mint for garnish, and finally topped it off with a straw. Delicious, not to mention super easy. The best part? For a re-fill all I did was top up the glass with more Skinnygirl, no extra work required!
While a good cocktail is always great with a book club discussion or a relaxing night with a new novel, this week I matched my mojito with a movie night! Hubby and I cuddled up, grabbed some chips 'n' salsa, and he grabbed a beer and I grabbed my mojito before settling down for a little bit of comedic horror with the 1996 classic, Scream (currently on Netflix). I know we are a bit behind the times, but this was the first time Hubby and I had seen this movie. Hubby thought it was pretty tame, which, honestly, it was. For someone who generally refuses to watch scary movies, this was about reaching my threshold for scary. Nonetheless we both enjoyed it and I have a new appreciation for the caller ID on cell phones.
I recently came across two websites that are perfect for Netflix recommendations. I like Netflix a lot, but sometimes it's hard to determine if a recommended movie is going to be complete rubbish or a new favorite. To eliminate some of the guess work I recommend checking out Newsday and Complex.
