Move over, Pomegranate Martini; there's a new drink in town!
You may have noticed açaí berries on smoothie menus (at least I have in New York). It's one of those wondrous superfoods that health experts believe packs a big nutritious punch. The next best place for a berry besides a smoothie is a cocktail, right? The Rink Bar at Rockefeller Center is serving up Açaí Berry Mojitos this summer. For those who won't be in New York anytime soon, they've kindly shared the recipe. Cheers!
