Que es "raw sugar" and where does one obtain it? And is it the rawness that makes it dirty? Or should we not wash the limes first? Or our hands? Or what?

Raw sugar is also known as "turbinado" sugar and the most famous brand is "Sugar In The Raw" like so:

P.S. It also requires dark vs. light rum.

Oh! (forehead smack) I actually have that! And also dark rum. But sadly, no mint at present. LMK how it is if you get to try one before me.
Oh, and smooch Poppy for me, while you're at it!

The dark rum/raw sugar thing gave it a sort of caramel-ish something that didn't quite work for me. IMCO, the lime needs something along the lines of a clear hit of sweetness and caramel doesn't play well with lime.
And Poppy IS the best. She says the most appalling stuff that would leave normal people shaking their heads in stunned silence and make me laugh.

I might be available during spring break --
I curse like a sailor, am terribly amusing, drink like a fish and love to eat and shop.
I'm only saying.

Do you have a REALLY cruel (and yet funny) sense of humor?
Badger posted at 6:42 PM, January 16, 2006
If you have to ask, then obviously you and the Bird have not corresponded off-blog.
Which is to say, I will vouch for her.

Come to think of it, I have done precious little off-blog corresponding. Except with Joke, of course.
This must--and should--be rectified, and eftsoons.
Please notice my gmail account information on my blog under the place where it says "my profile," and if you ever have anything cruel, yet funny to say, feel free to sling it along. A girl can never have enough cruel funniness.

Because now Badge knows what goes into a "dirty" mojito, and Poppy got to hang out with pals in the total absence of children offsprung by her or anyone else.
Not enough for me to be canonized, but at least enough to earn a "venerable."
