How To Make a Snowjito

Winter, you arrogant son of a bitch. As a good portion of the nation groans at the sight of fresh snow, we decided to take yet another opportunity to use this inclement weather to our advantage. Enter The Snowjito: rum, sugar, sparkling water, lime, mint, sugar, and snow. Let's kick some ice!

Step One: Grab a big glass and stuff that sucker halfway full of fresh powder. The party is only as good as the snow you're using. Use gloves if you deem it necessary, but also don't be a wuss.

Step Two: Pour in a heaping serving of rum. The brand is entirely up to you, but we personally don't feel comfortable using a rum that's not endorsed by a porn star. 

Step Three: Add a spruce of mint.

Step Four: Actually, make it rain. 

Step Five: Passionately pour some seltzer the way they pour wine in Italy. Bella! Tale bella acqua!

Step Six: Squeeze the absolute crap out of a lime. 

Step Seven: Give that shaker a little shake. Shake it real good now. Maybe thrust the air a little? Just to see how it feels. 

Step Eight: Pour the mojito mixture into your snow-filled glass. Open your mouth really wide for some reason.

Make sure to toast the winter gods in the sky before you drink. Cheers!
