Three things

I can't wait to make home-made mojitos. I can't wait to go camping with friends.
I can't wait for my first day as a graphic design intern...

Classic Mojito for Two

2 limes
4 oz (1/2 cup) minty simple syrup
bunch of mint leaves
4 oz. white rum
club soda or sparkling water
minty simple syrup
16 oz. sugar
16 oz. water
3 sprigs of fresh mint

Minty simple syrup: Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and set over medium high heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to high and let boil for a few minutes. Remove from heat and toss in the mint. Let steep for a few minutes (or until the syrup is minty enough for you). Remove the mint and let the syrup cool (can be stored in a glass jar, sealed, and refrigerated until ready to use). In a 12 oz. glass, combine lime juice, minty simple syrup, and a bunch of mint leaves. Muddle the leaves so they are bruised (not necessary to shred them). Fill the glass with ice and top with rum. Top the rest of the glass with club soda or sparkling water and garnish with a lime wedge. 



a collection a day (one)

Milk cap collection. Inspired by Lisa Congdon's A Collection a Day blog (now a book), I decided to look around my house (and my parents' house) to see if I could find any compilations, clusters, or combinations (thanks for the synonyms, internet!). I fell a few short of 365 collections, but I'll post more in the coming weeks.
