Olive's new pet and skinny mojito

Yesterday Lee (Bailey's long time boyfriend) was surf fishing and caught a little pompano.  It wasn't going to feed us dinner, but Olive seemed to think it was a new pet for her.  She was obsessed.

I also tried to copy Ally Baker's famous mojitos.  I butchered her exact recipe, but used some of her signature ingredients and they were well received.  Really refreshing for our cocktail hour on the porch (and a lot lower in calories than the typical sugary mojoito).

1-2 shots (improvised with Vodka, but usually would use Rum)
Fill glass with ice
Squeeze about 1/3 of a lime into the glass
Chop up mint leaves and put into the glass
Fill class up with 1/2 club soda and 1/2 Diet Sierra Mist
Garnish with wedge of lime and mint sprig


It's rainy today...but we are enjoying surfing on Pinterest for recipes and reading books on the porch.
