a summer staple: the mojito

what do you think of when you think of summer?
i think of volleyball at greenlake, laying by the pool at black butte ranch,
outdoor happy hours, BBQing with friends, lake parties,
boat shoes, red cups filled with lemonade, bonfires at golden garden,
s'mores, the smell of sunscreen and mojitos.

ahhh, summer. you are the best :)
