TGIF With Schweppes: THE GO COCO MOJITO

TGIF With Schweppes: THE GO COCO MOJITO

LENZO is getting so excited for our Christmas break, and are busily planning away on what goodies we can bring to all of the parties this silly season! Instead of a salad or a slice, LENZO likes to go a bit left of centre and create a cocktail for each of the guests in attendance!

These cocktails don't need to be overly hard to make, just #yummy and Instagrammable like The Go-CoCo Mojito we created for our New Year's Eve Editorial. The recipe was created for us by the talented team at Peter Rowland Catering, who were inspired by the crisp Schweppes Soda Water, and trust us, it is as delicious as it looks!

Happy Mixing!!

Love LENZO x
