Cocktails and Crafts - Botanical Prints

I guess they all can't be winners...
Gigi's face pretty much sums it up.
Today's craft didn't go as planned. We were supposed to make beautiful botanical print cards. We used card stock instead of watercolor paper and ended up with pretty colored goo but nothing really identifiable as a botanical print. We will definitely give this craft another try with the proper paper.

Not to put what we had to waste - the kids got their craft on and colored.

The craft may not have turned out as expected but the cocktail was yummy!

Blueberry Mojitos!
- 1 1/2 oz light rum
- 1/4 oz fresh lime juice
- 8 mint leaves
- 8 fresh blueberries
- 1 tsp sugar
- Club soda or sparkling water
Garnish: lime slice and mint sprig

Muddle (smash) mint leaves and blueberries with sugar in a mixing glass. Add light rum, lime juice to shake with ice. Pour into a tall glass. Add more blueberries and soda. Garnish with lime slice and mint sprig.
