Thank you to my friends Greg and Kari for introducing me to this drink. With a few minor adjustments, I am completely satisfied to share this with all of you!
It seems every summer there is one drink that I get hooked on, and I make it repeatedly. This summer I not only had the cherry beer margaritas, but now I’m hooked on cherry mojitos. I guess cherries are in this year!
And this is a great drink to put together for, oh say, the 4th of July! ENJOY!
