Orange-Basil Mojito Recipe Dine & Dish

 The giveaway is now closed. Congrats to winner, Laurie Williams. Thanks to all who entered!

The events of last week put a bit of a hold on my current favorite cookbook showcase, but I’m back this week with a few more favorites to share! Today, I’m featuring my good friend, Lori’s, new cookbook, The Recipe Girl Cookbook!

I’m sure you are familiar with the Recipe Girl blog… one of the most comprehensive places for recipes on the internet. When I found out Lori was going to be doing a cookbook, I knew this was one book I’d want on my bookshelf! I can let you know, friends, that Lori’s cookbook does not disappoint. With over 190 recipes and tips for successful entertaining, The Recipe Girl cookbook is a great cookbook for beginner and advanced cooks a like!

What do I love about Lori’s cookbook? Well, to start, I really like that her cookbook has a lot of variety to it. From simple appetizers, like Caramelized Onion Dip, to healthy salads, like Triple Berry Salad with Sugared Almonds, to Caramel Apple Pie Crust Cookies, there are recipes for each and every taste and occasion. Oh, and cocktails… I love the cocktail recipes in The Recipe Girl cookbook! That’s why I’ve chosen to share this Orange-Basil Mojito recipe with you… it’s unique and refreshing and you’ll definitely want it to be on your list of cocktails to indulge in this summer.

Berry-SaladBefore I get to the recipe, Lori has teamed up with KitchenAid to give Dine & Dish readers the chance to win a copy of The Recipe Girl Cookbook AND a new KitchenAid Blender! Yay!

Orange-Basil Mojitos

A refreshing Orange-Basil Mojito recipe from The Recipe Girl Cookbook

Ingredients

  3. Also, it doesn’t matter where anyone lives
    or if they travel Locally, Nationally or Internationally, everyone can continue
    watching their favorite shows whenever you want.

    This is something that you can also record shows, even at the same time.
    Not only that, but the reliability and quality of the N96′s VoIP voice services when Internet TV,
    or standalone PC applications that connect via the Internet.
