Mojito with lemon grass

mojito à la citronnelle
Go hop ! Following the official announcement of the launch of my blog, I offer you, to celebrate, un petit verre de mojito à la citronnelle !

It was a moment that this cocktail idea kept running in my head and I wanted to test it.
The result and tip top and gives an impression of holiday, even if it is not yet. You'll understand, for me, It is not immediately… In fact I lie a little car, This year, I decided to take 2 time my vacation, 1 week end of June in the overwhelming heat of the Moroccan desert and 2 weeks in September to look at the green landscapes of the Ireland…

Enfin bref, I'll tell you everything again and I return to my p'tit cocktail which will be perfect between friends or lovers, provided that they do not forget to divide the dose by 2 😉

      He has taste, Indeed, but as it does not cook Lemongrass, the scent is light. D’ailleurs, I used it later in a similar dish to my ravioli.
