The Best Social Media Tips Ever! Part II and a stiff one to beat the Texas heat










You ever have that time when you know you published your blog and then it shows up in the “draft” column, not the “published” section? Turns out the Tools for Tuesday blog of the ‘Best Social Media Tips Ever!’ did just that. So, I published the Part I yesterday. That means today is a “two-fer-Thursday.” Here’s the link to Part II of The Best Social Media Tips Ever!” and a great recipe for a “Mojito Fresco.” If you don’t know what Mojitos are, they are drinks that combine muddled limes, mint leaves and rum to leave you in a South Florida state of mind. At around 150 calories a serving, you can have a few Mojito Frescos to help you deal with any last remaining bits of summer that may be lingering in your area this weekend. In Texas, we’ve had a nice break from the triple digits this past week with weather in the 80s and low 90s, but this weekend summer is going to kick us in the ass again with temps back up in the high 90s. Not good for our firefighters battling historic wildfires out West and down in central Texas. If you see reports of a naked man doing a rain dance in Dallas this weekend, you know I at least tried to make it rain. Oh, and that I’ve had too many mojito frescos. Recipe is below. Enjoy your weekend!

Mojito Fresco
2 large limes
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
Ice Cubes
1/4 to 1/2 cup light rum
a handful of mint leaves
Quartered limes (optional)
1. Cut the 2 large limes into pieces; combine with the 2 cups water, and the 1 cup of sugar, and the mint leaves in a blender container. Cover tightly; blend with several on-off motions for 30 seconds or until limes are coarsely chopped. Do not puree. Strain through a sieve into a large pitcher. Dilute mixture with 1 to 2 cups water to taste. Cover and chill.

2. Wet the rims of 4 to 6 tall glasses; dip rims in sugar. Fill sugar-rimmed glasses with ice. Add 1/2 to 1 ounce rum to each glass. Pour chilled lime mixture over rum. Add extra quartered limes, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
