This Mandarin Orange Mojito combines the powerful flavors of citrus and mint for a spa-worthy cocktail!
Everybody, get your best Rebecca Black voice ready to go in your head because…
It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday! It’s mojitos, mojitos, gotta get those mojitos!
Is there anything better than Friday at 5 with a cocktail in hand and the full weekend ahead of you? Maybe if you’re doing it in some far away land, but otherwise, it’s pretty hard to beat. The only thing I can think of that would make it even better is enjoying them both with the girls at the spa!
As women, I think we all dream about the spa. The pampering, the fragrance, the stress relief. You know how many times during a given week I tell my husband, “I need a real massage” or “I need a good foot soak”? Well, why not take care of that foot soak right at home with the girls with a chick flick, a game of salad bowl, and drinks. Trust me, at home spas days are way more fun than the pricey ones and you don’t have to share the locker room with people who are a little too comfortable in their own skin in front of strangers, am I right?
Now a spa night in the summer calls for a light and summery cocktail. This Mandarin Orange Mojito combines bright citrus and light rum over crushed ice tossed with fresh mint and topped with Canada Dry Sparkling Seltzer Water in Mandarin Orange. It’s smooth and aromatic, perfect for winding down with the girls! Canada Dry Sparkling Seltzer Water is all natural with 0 calories and 0 sodium, perfect for helping us watch the waste lines! I even whipped up a recipe for an Orange Mint Sugar Scrub to use at your spa night.
