Boat Drink Friday.
80 degrees in March? I can’t think of a better reason for boat drinks. Made famous by Jimmy Buffett, but the term always reminds me of one of my favorite movies, “Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead”. Today’s boat drink? The Mint Limonata. Found online at Chow, and enjoyed on our back deck this Friday evening. Something tells me it won’t be the last time we enjoy one of these……light, lemony, minty. Tastes like summer’s fleeting promise :D Cheers!

2 ounces limoncello
1 ounce vodka
2 ounces soda water
2 medium mint leaves, torn in half
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add limoncello and vodka. Shake to combine.
Add soda water to and stir to mix in. Pour into a rocks glass and top with torn mint leavesd.
Author’s note: I muddled the leaves first before adding to the shaker for more minty goodness.
