Key Lime Pie Mojito

Well the day has finally arrived! I know many of you won’t be able to come down and buy one of my Mojito French Macarons so I’m leaving you with something along the same lines.

Mojito & Key Lime Liqueur

While searching for a good rum to use for my Mojito French macarons, I came across a couple of very interesting bottles of liqueur that I just had to bring home with me. These two babies were the inspiration for this derssert-like cocktail.

Enjoy!

Fresh mint from the garden and Lime.

It was nice meeting you yesterday, even for a little bit. My girls got some of your macarons and are mesmerized by them:)
I love mojitos of any kind. And what’s not to like with a cocktail which promises to be a dessert, too?

I love mojitos, but these sound amazing! I love that you have taken these to the dessert level and added the creamy element of the liqueur! Key lime pie one of my favorite desserts, and I have a feeling I would like these just as much! Great idea :)!
