I was so excited to hear that Skinnygirl created a new ready-to-serve MOJITO! I don’t know about you, but I love mojitos. So naturally, I knew I had to get my new cookbook, The Everything Wheat-Free Diet Cookbook to find something delicious that would pair nicely with this refreshing cocktail. I ended up my making Coconut Lime Shrimp. It was a match made in heaven!
