I’ve got my lime
I’ve got my mint
I left the last of the ice in it,
I found the rum
stole the hummingbird food too,
went round the world (on-line of course)
in search of the perfect mojito.
I love the green that swims in it
I love the drops from the cold as it sits,
To pluck and chop and stir so sweetly
but it always seems to go down too quick
I’ve got more limes
more than enough time
the sweetest man who whips it up
service with a smile
I think I may just have to sit with it awhile,
savor the flavor beneath the winter sun
and pretend like I’ve just begun,
hey bartender, I’ll take one more
as the Mexican perky music plays
I realize these my friends, are perfect days.
Hubby and I grabbed some mint at the farmers market and some limes, whipped up some sweet syrup and relaxed poolside sipping, then hubby found a new recipe, the best one yet and mixed more up the next day. He’s had the flamingo stir stick for over 25 years, must have known it was a harbinger of things to come, moving to Florida and yummy drinks poolside. Life is good indeed. Ribs on tap for dinner tonight and looking forward to that.
