Confession: since being held up in quarantine I have consumed more alcoholic beverages than I would care to mention. Though it isn’t all that shameful since I have learned how to make new cocktails in this time of boredom and uncertainty.

What’s the next cocktail you wonder? Bachelor in Paradise star, Wells Adams, shares his spicy Mojito recipe he submitted for BACARDI Rum‘s #BacardiMojitoRemix contest on Instagram.
