The perfect mojito for me

The other day a certain someone slipped this recipe to me, perhaps hinting that I should make more than a few servings for her and her friends. It certainly looks like someone I’d whip up for the poolside party.

North River Notes

Daily observations on the Hudson River as it passes through New York City. The section of the Hudson which passes through New York is historically known as the North River, called this by the Dutch to distinguish it from the Delaware River, which they knew as the South River. This stretch of the Hudson is still often referred to as the North River by local mariners today. All photos by Daniel Katzive unless otherwise attributed. Twitter @dannykatman
