Pineapple Arugula Mojito

pineapple arugula mojito recipeSo far May has been a whirlwind. In a good way, but it is flying by. A few weeks ago, I went to Dole, and this week, I went to Minneapolis to visit General Mills International Headquarters. If you ever would have told me that this blog would have given me so many amazing opportunities, I would never have believed you. But it truly has. I have met so many interesting people, acquired skills that I never knew I possessed, and visited some truly inspiring places. Life is good.

The first night on the Dole trip, there was a really nice cocktail party for all of us to get to know each other. These pineapple arugula mojitos blew us all away. So fresh and light, they could very easily get you in trouble. I never would have thought to put arugula in a cocktail, but it completely works. This my friends, is the summer cocktail of 2012.
