I’ve made plans for you.

They include these drinks. Pink straws included. !!!! (if you want.) (but why wouldn’t you?)

I figured instead of forcing my childish Jessica-specific vernacular on you today along with extra love for sprinkles, glitter, 90s boy bands, denim and all other predictable things I gripe about, I’d just show you a picture of this icy drink and hope it’s enough.

Sometimes that’s all you need. Can I get away with this?

Total Time: 20 minutes

2 limes, juiced
1/4 cup fresh mint, torn into pieces
1 1/2 cups ice, approximately

mint simple syrup
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
10 fresh mint leaves

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until ice is crushed and mixture is combined. Add more ice if needed, then taste and add a little extra rum if desired.

Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat just until it bubbles, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Turn heat down to low for 2 minutes, then remove and let sit to cool for 15 to 20 minutes.

I made coconut mango mojitos (hold the frost) early last year and talked about how I was feeling legitimately old. Still rockin’ it.
