DIY Lychee Mojitos

DIY, Home  /   /  By Aimee Santos

With the weather so beautiful in Los Angeles, I have been taking advantage of every opportunity to be outside and hang out by the pool. When my friends are visiting, I like to make refreshing cocktails that match perfectly with the gorgeous weather. My favorite recipe is for a Lychee Mojito. I love gin based cocktails and after trying a recipe of a gin mojito, I never looked back. Hope you enjoy!
