“MojiTee” from Villas of Grand Cypress Recipe

We asked Mixologist Adrian Priestly of Villas of Grand Cypress to share his favorite Mojito recipe for National Mojito day. He told us that “when you think of VGC you think of golf. Legendary golf. That’s why we created an Arnold Palmer inspired beverage, guaranteed to cool you off after a day on the golf course or just chilling poolside.” I love this recipe because it incorporates coconut and sweet tea; two of my favorite things!1x1.trans MojiTee from Villas of Grand Cypress Recipe

The Club at Villas of Grand Cypress is the resort’s casual dining spot and bar extraordinaire that overlooks the lush green fairways of the North and South Courses. Open seven days a week, The Club provides a comfortable gathering place for the after golf get-together or that family meal.
