While on vacation last week, most days kinda went like this: (a) assume crash position on chaise-lounge; (b) appraise the natural beauty of the beach from behind super dark sunglasses; (c) work on tan; (d) read cheesy, 1970's, long forgotten, best selling novel; (e) sip excellent mixed drink: the frozen Mojito!
1 1/2 oz White rum;
10 leaves of fresh mint;
16 ice cubes or about one tray;
One can of frozen limeade from concentrate (you can substitute with one can of frozen lemonade);
Teaspoon of sugar (adjust to taste if you like it sweeter);
(1) Toss all ingredients in a blender;
(2) Blend on high until smooth;
(3) Pour into glass, garnish with lime (as illustrated above)
A thing of beauty!
The traditional mojito is not to my liking. But, make it frozen, blend those mint leaves to smithereens in a blender full of ice and frozen limeade/lemonade and you impart the delicate taste of mint through out the drink and yeah! The earth did move! Just for you! That's all you need for proof that there is a G-d!

P.S.: WTF! I've got more chins than a Hong Kong telephone book! And those cheeks! I look like a character that belongs in an Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. I gotta drop some weight. Funny how in our mind's eye we are 22yrs old forever. I guess there is some truth in that old L.A. adage: You can never be too rich or too thin!
