I got this idea from another photographer about two months ago and was waiting for the best time to try this. I’d do it differently next time, but I think it turned out okay for the first time. They use brown sugar is all their Mojito’s at this resort, so they are an unusual brown color. To get this photo with a normal looking drink, I asked them to make it without the sugar. So the drink looks pretty, but tasted terrible. But the photo is the important item, not the drink.
I am posting this for Melanie, who doesn’t seem to drink anything else.
