What Do You Drink at Your Second Home?

Share News:

In Roatan and in La Paz, Mojitos. I am a huge Mojito girl, and love them best made with fresh mint and lime. I thought Victor’s muddled Mojitos were the best I’d ever tasted, created at Bite on the Beach in West Bay, Roatan –great restaurant — and he sent me home with the recipe and a bag of Honduran pure cane sugar. (Carrying a bag of white powder home from Central America did make me a little nervous, have to admit, but never come between a girl and her Mojitos.) But at Costa Baja in La Paz, I had another delicious Mojito and learned they pureed fresh pineapple in with the mint, lime and sugar.¬† What do you like to drink when you relax at home? Anyone making homemade eggnog this year?

    Mojitos are downright delicious — and dangerous! I applaud your sense of adventure. I have recently accepted the fact that I am a yuppie, and for me that means drinking wine on most occasions … er, most occasions that call for libations. However, I do enjoy a white Russian from time to time at home, and I'm eager to perfect the art of the dirty martini.
