It's been hot around these parts lately. In fact some days feel like mother nature has entirely skipped spring and jumped right into summer. Not good when you've recently moved into a studio without central ac and no time to purchase a window ac unit! It's high priority on the weekend to-do list. Meanwhile, I'm in need of a seriously cool and refreshing beverage to beat this heat. Say no more... Key Lime Mojitos sound just right!
