Back to the box, mine contained a dragon fruit (in Brazil, we call it Pitaya), rambutans, limes,
lychees, mint and rum with that came a card with a challenge to make your own mojito
with a difference, using the ingredients provided in the box. I started by eating the lychees,
how delicious and sweet they were! lovely.
Next I prepared the mojito. I liked it so much that I decided to share the recipe with my readers.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
