Mojito Punch.

A new take on the classic Mojito, we used a vintage punch bowl to make this delicious mint cocktail easy to serve at your next party or gathering.

Mint, lime, and rum all in one drink? Count me in! Mojitos are a refreshing, mint-filled cocktail to make when it is warm outside. I’m never at a shortage of sprawling mint in my garden so finding recipes to use the leaves in makes me pretty happy. With plenty of zest and sweetness of flavor, the mojito is a perfect cocktail for a party.

I love making cocktails in punch bowls because it makes hosting that much easier. I am constantly pulling my punch bowl out during the holiday season so I wanted to challenge myself to get some more spring + summer rotations in the mix.

I throw some muddled mint leaves, freshly sliced limes and lime juice, mint simple syrup, rum, and club soda in my favorite vintage punch bowl and serve them up in some vintage punch glasses. Not only is this drink a hit at parties, but it makes for a beautiful center piece on my table or kitchen counter.

I love serving it this way at parties, because it is so easy to serve to a large group of guests, rather than muddling mint for each cup. I could see this one being the perfect baby or bridal shower cocktail too.

like commemorating any special event, our first child is one we will do just as meaningfully as any other. i was on the hunt for the perfect gift for my mother & mother-in-law who threw a baby shower for me this past weekend. our parents have been doing so much for us to prepare,  in all the excitement as we await our little boy.

i adore the simple, classic, Southern tradition of the silhouette, but of course we will have to wait on that one for a bit {hard to do before he's born, you know ..}. the stackable 1,2,3 and a,b,c rings i am just obsessed with - simple and easy to add to as your family grows, but i decided that i loved this more as a gift idea for a new mom {ie: me!} than as grandma gifts. and so, i settled on the vintage-inspired initial charms that each grandma can use however they please to commemorate their grandson and his new name. i think they are just darling and i'm so happy with the find.

i wanted to find a gift that would be as special and memorable as the shower itself, and also one that would play to a little surprise we were planning for the shower. we have been working to find the perfect name for our little guy, and 8 months later we have finally found it. and so, we used the shower as the perfect time to surprise our parents, family & friends by revealing his name. but, more on that tomorrow!

what other gift ideas have you seen or given as a baby shower thank you, or for grandparents to be?
