Mojitos are so refreshing. I have had good ones, I think it is mint, rum, sugar and sparkling water...I really love them when it is hot out. Sort of like a Pimm''s cup or mint julep if I can recall...

sorry yours was vile, Ellen, make sure to try one again somewhere else...they might have used cheap rum or something...

df, as I recall, the mint seemed, somewhat chopped up? I remember thinking, this isn''t very pretty...And there was a bitter taste (too much mint?). Maybe the bartender just didn''t know how to make them, I''ll try again.

Lorelei, maybe that is why her drink had a funny taste!!!!!

I love red wine, but now and then love a neat flavored cosmo, or a mojito...but tend to stick with wine and champagne, or kir royales...but if someone is bartending, here I come!

My apologies for not getting back to you sooner, I've been working so hard, even had to work Superbowl weekend too (ugh!). Getting ready for a huge business meeting and presentation this coming weekend so I just popped in to say.

THANKS FOR THINKING OF ME

I need comforting. I just realised that I will never be an Ideal Rock.

To get that status you have to be like this..... (and I quote from a past thread):

...... Ideal Rock has nothing to do with the number of posts but whether they are helpful to the new members and have interesting educational information to everybody........

I find the technical diamond stuff very difficult to understand so it looks like I shall remain a Cut Rock. I wouldn''t dare try to advise anyone if I don''t fully ''get it'' myself.

I don''t mind really, I am grateful that I got moved up from Rough Rock!
