This was a Martha Stewart summer drink recipe that Bloghungry modified to make more manageable. I'm not sure why it's called a mojito, because it uses vodka instead of rum and contains no mint. However, it is light and refreshing and was the official drink of our 4th of July BBQ this year. Martha knows her booze.
