I know we were all saying farewell to summer over Labor Day weekend but guess what guys… summer’s still here! We’ve officially entered into the final week of summer (fall begins on Friday!) which means, we’ve gotta make the most of it.

From wearing your favorite white denim on repeat to walking the long way to soak up some extra sunshine, I’m all about making the most of the final few days of summer before we welcome fall. The days are about to get shorter, the temperatures are about to drop and the sweaters are about to come out so let’s make a toast to the summer 0f 2017 with a little End of Summer Sparkler cocktail.

This summer my unofficial cocktail of the season was the mojito – it all started with trips to Tulum and Cartagena in the spring and just kept goin’ since they’re so darn refreshing. But we can’t send summer off with just a standard mojito… so let’s take things to the next level with the help of some IZZE.

How to make the ultimate end of summer mojito:

  • This sounds delicious! I’m not a big fan of mint in cocktails but I think it would meld well with these flavors.
