I had the pinkest pleasure of attending How 2 Girl, Courtney Bingham-Sixx’s Think Pink Ladies Luncheon a few weeks ago at her & her husband, Nikki Sixx’s, gorgeous home in Westlake Village.
The reason? To team up with Bright Pink Org and honor breast cancer awareness month by raising both awareness and money for breast cancer research.
She had pink cupcakes, a DIY Glam Your Ribbon station and more!
While the cause was one I’m proud to support and the company was just the sweetest, the cocktails were a sight to behold!
Thirsty Thursday: How2Girl Signature Strawberry Mojito
Here is Courtney’s How2Girl Signature Strawberry Mojito. Courtney says, “This refreshing combo of fresh fruit and fizz will have you feeling like you are at a spa on a tropical vacation, without having to leave the house.”
Here’s what you’ll need:
6 strawberries quartered
1/2 bunch mint leaves
3 large limes
1 c white sugar
1 c rum
8 c crushed ice
raspberries for garnish
- Pour 1/4 to 1/2 inch of sugar onto a small, shallow plate. Run one of the lime quarters around the rim of each cocktail glass, then dip the glasses into the sugar to rim; set aside.
- Whip out your SodaStream, and make yourself a batch of Strawberry Soda.
- Squeeze all of the lime quarters into a sturdy glass pitcher. Toss the juiced limes into the pitcher along with the mint, strawberries, and 1 cup of sugar. Crush the fruits together with a muddler, to release the juices from the strawberries and the oil from the mint leaves. Stir in the rum and Strawberry Soda until the sugar has dissolved. Pour into the sugared glasses over ice cubes, add in a raspberry and enjoy!
