I got to experiment with creating a few different drinks for my baby shower. Yes, I am a total baby-showerzilla and I can’t help but design and plan for it! I have four amazing hosts, who are helping me so much and at the same time, letting me do my thing, ha!! But I decided on this recipe and it’s a perfect spring cocktail!
This lavender mojito is made with a homemade lavender simple syrup, fresh lime juice, and mint leaves, and a delicious white rum. The drink has a slight lavender flavor with a beautiful lavender essence.

Thanks girls! Amy, we actually just moved to a different apartment in the same building, ha!! We’ll be here for about another year or so while we house hunt and decide what area in LA we want to buy a house. That’s the hardest part now because we have to think about schools!! So we’re taking our time to decide 😉
These mojito’s are the prettiest drinks ever! Love.
Didn’t know that you moved! Congrats Eden! You’re so lucky to get to decorate a new place. I kinda wish I could do the same. LOL!
Did you switch cities or just apartments within the same location?
That sounds delish!
