    Default Planning the Labor Day Gathering!

    Mojitos!!

    This sounds good enough to put in an ice cream freezer and create a
    frozen treat.

    I'm not fond of mojitos, but I might actually like a watermelon mojito. Does
    it use mint? If I made it, I'd probably try it with basil instead; basil
    goes well with watermelon. Now that I think about it, and being google-lazy
    because it's past my bedtime, has anybody tried a tomato mojito?

    I don't like the sound of a tomato mojito, but watermelon appealed.
    Basil goes very well with watermelon, but so does mint so I guess the
    herb is up to you. Sage and gin are another good mojito combo.

    Good grief. The mojito is undergoing the same sacrilege that happened
    to the martini. Next thing you know they'll substitute bayleaf mint
    juleps with bayleaf. :-p

    Sage and gin? OMG. I've had rum and basil. IMHO, basil does not
    belong in a mixed drink. If you like rum, mint, and lime, there's
    nothing wrong with the original. If you don't like it, drink something
    else or make your watermelon stuff but don't call it a mojito.

    I can't imagine that a Cuban would make a tomato mojito. Mojito by
    nature is just tropical fruit...not native American tomato.

    But then again...I have been so wrong about everything today.

    See, that's the problem: I *don't* like the combination of rum, mint, and
    lime. But I'm willing to try rum, tomato, and basil -- whatever you call
    it.

    But it's trendy to call things things they are not. Look at all the
    martinis. Anything with tequila in it and served in a margarita glass
    gets called margarita. Now, any rum highball gets called a mojito. I
    bet it's because people want to feel exotic. Think of all the
    "margaritas" out there where the tequila is cut with vodka. People
    like to think of themselves as people who like tequila, even though
    they're not.

    The travel ban to Cuba is STUPID, and has failed to displace Castro
    for almost 50 years.

    many state policies are stupid. the politicians get paid to be clever
    enough to live off the cream of the citizen. policies are 2nd in line
    if that.

    Unfortunately, much of the less expensive tequila in the US has already
    been heavily cut with vodka, before it was bottled.
