Cocktail of the Month: Pear Mojito

It's June and we are moving outdoors!  We are soaking up the sunshine, planting our gardens and lounging out on our patios with a cocktail in hand.  My favorite summer cocktail is a Mojito, so my husband Jason knew just where to start when I came to him with this month's theme, "Outdoor Living".  He whipped up his own concoction of this classic drink and the pear nectar is the perfect addition to sip on summer evenings.  Keep scrolling and you'll see and hear the song I'll be playing (courtesy of our musical contributor, Wendy Lane Bailey) while enjoying my Pear Mojito.  Now, I'm off to plant some more fresh mint!
