Spring Herb Mojito

Hardy mint and its close cousin lemon balm are just about the only edible things that are looking robust in our backyards these days.  We plucked a few tender leaves, and plan to kick back and sip these spring herb mojitos as Spring advances.

All those fresh green leaves suspended in white rum with a spritz of lime – the perfect breath of an early spring garden.
