Friday Roundup – Mojitos and Bloggers

Submitted by on November 12, 2010 – 10:07 amNo Comment

As you know, Carrie is in Tennessee and I am in California. We usually talk about once a day to catch up and discuss what we’ll be featuring on the Tiki Tiki. (We talk a lot of trash, too, but that’s not important right now.)

This week the conversation went something like this:

Carrie: “Que semana mas tremenda!”

Marta: “Tell me about it! I may have to take up drinking.”

(Disclaimer: I don’t really drink, but I like the idea of having a drink. Oh….never mind.)

Last week at the L.A. Discovering Mas Latina Bloggers Luncheon, I met the lovely Veronica Smith and she introduced me to her Muy Bueno Cookbook which featured a Persimmon Mojito. I know! Genius, right?

She also has a recipe for a virgin Persimmon Mojito. Which sounded just about perfect for me.

Speaking of celebrating, we’d like to congratulate our friend and colleague, Ana Lillian Flores on the tremendously successful launch this week of Latina Bloggers Connect.

From the Latina Bloggers Connect website:

Latina Bloggers Connect is where you come to find out what’s happening and who’s who in the influential Latina blogosphere.

Latina Bloggers Connect is a place for our community of Latina Bloggers to keep learning and growing as professionals and reap the rewards.

Latina Bloggers Connect is where opportunities are created for bloggers to connect with the brands that want to engage and create alliances with the fastest growing group online.


It’s Friday. What do you have to celebrate this week?

And if you were going to celebrate Happy Hour (theoretically, of course!) what would be your drink of choice? Tell me.

Share, por favor!
