Christmas is in ten days. Ten days!! Are you ready? I’m almost there. I’m pretty excited to celebrate Christmas this year. Not only are we in a new place, but my parents are coming to stay with us. This will be the first year we all wake up together and celebrate Christmas together all day. Makes my heart happy. I’m still tinkering around with our menu for Christmas. Not sure what to make, but I know what I’ll serving for drinks.

It’s so delicious you won’t even realize that your glass is empty. That could be a good or bad thing. 🙂 When I made these mojitos I kept in mind that this drink needed to be light and refreshing. No one wants to feel heavy after having a few drinks. Christmas is for cookies and other treats, so you need the alcohol to be light and delicious.

If you’ve never made mojitos before then you’ll be surprised how easy mojitos are to make. I’ve always thought mojitos would be difficult because of the muddling. In fact it’s actually very easy. You can use the back of a wooden spoon or be like me and buy a cool looking muddler. Once you have a muddler, the drink comes together very easily.

Gathering around the dinner table and celebrate being together. Making memories and having fun together! I remember being small and always seeing the adults have these pretty glasses and cheering to each other on Christmas day. I would get a plastic cup with apple juice so I could cheers too. Now that I’m an adult I get the pretty glasses to celebrate with. These glass give you that holiday feel and just add to the celebration, which is perfect for a Christmas dinner don’t you think?
