Minty!

To ring in recent birthdays, I was all about ordering up mojitos!

La Canela Pasión

Passionfruit Mojito topped with Cocktail Fruit from La Canela Peruvian Restaurant

  1. First, to celebrate my Tita Fe‘s birthday, I had this Passionfruit Mojito at the Peruvian restaurant ~ thanks to my cousin & her hubby!
  2. Then I enjoyed a refreshing Frozen Blueberry Mojito at my own Bday Brunch from Miguel’s Mex Tex Café (Mex intentionally before Tex)!
  3. Most recently, I toasted to my cousin’s birthday with this Twisted Madre Mango Margarita ~ another special from Miguel’s Agave Bar!

On our trip to EP, I had a little bit of everything …

As soon as we arrived, we hit Saigon Taste for Vietnamese ~ so I got my bubble tea fix!

Taro Tea from Saigon Taste Vietnamese Restaurant

We took in the breeze of the CHRISTmas trees at Ft. Bliss … at B-Dubs of all places!

♪Grandma got run over by a Reindeer

Actually, yours truly got stunned over by a Reindeer!

B-Dubs HOLYday YOLO: Spiked Apple Cider * Italian Burger (complete with Mozzarella Sticks & Pepperoni)

My AF brat bestie’s hubby’s grad party was complete with menudo and Peter Piper Pizza!

¡Menudo y más cerca de México!

Before hitting the road, I tried the *NEW* HOLYday flavor at Starbucks!

Sippy Selfie: ¡Salud a Starbucks! ¡CHEERS con Café! *GO, COWBOYS*
