I’ve been in love with Method products for quite awhile so I jumped at the chance to go to Method’s temporary pop up store in SoHo for a cocktail party. The Liquid Muse was in the pop up house, teaching us gals how to make organic, fresh, yummy cocktails. I sipped (ok, downed) the best mojito EVER, picked up some muddling tips and learned that when it comes to antioxidants, the acai berry is the new pomegranate.
My friend Margo of Pingg came along and we sampled a couple cocktails…
Well… I think I count nine glasses.
But the Liquid Muse did not work alone. Everyone needs a young, strapping Method assistant like Kyle.
I know, I called him Marvin in my title. But the name Kyle just didn’t work with my alliteration groove. You have to give me a little creative freedom.
I also learned about cool organic vodkas like Purus and Square One. Plus, an organic tequila called 4 copas. I mean, if you’re going to drink the hard stuff, you mind as well be sort of good to your body and the earth.
And I even scooped some free Method products which are naturally derived, biodegradable and beautifully designed.
Yup, all on a school night.
By the way, this is is my most favorite mojito recipe ever…
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 3 mint leaves
- 2 ounces white rum
- club soda
Muddle (fancy word, right?) lime juice with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon sugar. Add the mint leaves, mushing (less fancy word) them against the side of the glass. Fill glass 2/3 with ice and pour in the rum. Throw in the squeezed-out lime shell and top with club soda.
