Zesty Orange Mojito

We’re always on the look out for tasty new mojito recipes and ran across this one recently. The orange mixes very nicely with the lime and mint. A delicious taste of tropical citrus goodness –  good even in the winter when oranges are in high season. Almost like a little sunshine in your glass.
