This summer take the classic mojito cocktail to a whole new lemony level
When summer is in full swing and pool parties are calling, it's essential to know how to craft the perfect, refreshing and delicious cocktail that will have everyone beg for more. 
All you need is a fun new recipe (I've got that for you) and a bottle (or make it TWO!) of delicious Bacardi rum

Because of its unique and versatile character, smooth and light body, Bacardi rum makes the perfect choice for summer entertaining. When it comes to rum-spiked drinks there are really many options out there. From daiquiri to rum punch, pina colada and mojito. All are so great that it's hard to pick just one. 
But today (and just for YOU!) I'm sharing what I can honestly say is my new favorite of the summer. Take a look!

Coconut and Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

Experience love at first bite with these elegant and luscious chocolate-coconut cheesecake bars


I haven't posted a new recipe in a loooong time! Sorry, I've been just "busy" with vacation :) 
I spent ten fabulous days in St John US Virgin Island. This was my very first time in the Caribbean ... I know. What's wrong with me?!? I absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back and explore some of the other islands. 
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw a few of my pictures from paradise. I should probably write a post about all the amazing places we visited,  and share some more photos with you. 
For now, look at this!

Enough about vacation. I'm back, relaxed and re-energized. And ready to bake!
And what's better than starting with a tropic-inspired crazy-delicious dessert?!? 
A super creamy thick layer of coconut cheesecake with a hint of almond flavor. On top of an easy-to-make chocolate graham cracker crust. All drizzled with melted chocolate and a touch of extra coconut. 
Extraordinary things happen when chocolate and coconut come together. Especially in a refreshing and creamy cheesecake form.
