DJSayaka

"I love mojitos, but sometimes I am just not feeling the mint. Luckily, this is a great alternative that brings together the complex aromatic flavor of basil and the cool, refreshing splash of a cucumber."

My first time ever having a mojito, so I really don't have anything to compare to, but I liked this! I didn't have any club soda, so I just added a splash of citrus soda. It was yummy!
