Tart & Sweet Pineapple Mojito Summer Specialty Cocktail Recipe

I love a great specialty cocktail for a few reasons.  In regards to specialty cocktails at events like weddings, they help guide guests to a delectable beverage as well as giving your wedding guests another insight to who you are as a couple.  You may recall a month or so ago we featured a wonderfully chic upscale Bachlorette party from Lauren W Photography, which offered guests 2 homemade summer specialty cocktails.  Many wondered the recipes for these 2 frosty beverages, so today we are sharing the recipe for the Pineapple Mojito!
