Cherry Mojito Cocktail Recipe


Mmmm... cherries are in season!  Cherries are notoriously expensive and the only time fresh cherries are somewhat affordable is now.  I picked up a huge bag on sale and Nick ate them ALL, I mean we are talking 2 pounds or so, he was just so excited we had cherries in the house.  He was unaware I needed them for a post.  He kindly picked me up another batch when he was by a Whole Foods which means these cherries cost a million dollars.  Anyhow, whenever something pops up in season, I think about ways it would work in a cocktail- so we have a cherry mojito!


How To Make A Cherry Mojito! makes 1

Cherries- 3-4 cherries for muddling, 8 cherries for juice
Mint- handful of cut mint
Sparkling Water
Fresh Lime Juice- half lime squeezed
One shot of Rum
Agave Syrup (alternatively you can use simple syrup, but we use agave for a sweetener around here)

Muddle a couple cherries (with pits removed) with mint in a glass.  Add ice. Squeeze about 8 cherries for the juice and add to glass. Add rest of ingredients (sparkling water, lime juice, rum and agave syrup to taste) I do not like sweet drinks so I use about a teaspoon of agave, but I would say most people prefer it sweeter, so add 2-3 teaspoons.  Stir and enjoy a relaxing Summer beverage.

DIY Marble & Wood Hooks


If you follow me along on Instagram stories, you may know that we recently got closets installed in our home and that I am very obsessed with our new closets. We used metal racks for past 3 years or so as our closet spaces, so to say I am incredibly grateful and ecstatic about our new closets is an understatement.  I work everyday on organizing it and there are two DIYS on my list for it- these marble wood hooks & once the other is complete, I will do a closet reveal on blog.






Marble & Wood Hooks Material List (all items available at your local home improvement store)



5/8ths Wood Dowel (cut into individual 3 inch pieces)
Marble Hexagon Tile
Dowel Screws
Strong Glue

Glue wood dowel to back of an individual marble tile (they come off from the large tile very easily)  and let dry.



(you can also do these nest steps FIRST and then glue the wood with dowel screw in it to marble tile) I would do it this way, so you do not have to wait for glue to dry in order to put the dowel screw in... But, I realized that AFTER I did it...

Drill hole into wood dowel:





Get the dowel screw into the wood dowel (we use vice grips to help)
