There’s this huge billboard on the Kitsilano side of the Burrard Street bridge and it currently displays – on a rotating basis – an ad for Jugo Juice’s new “Mint Mojito” smoothie.
This drives me crazy.
Quick sidenote, for some reason my Mum pronounces Jugo Juice “Jugga Juice.” At first I think she, for some reason, thought that was it’s name. Now, however, I think she just does it to annoy me. Not that Jugo Juice comes up a lot in conversation – I will not be sharing this particular annoyance with my mother – but when it does come up I can tell she relishes the chance to annoy me.
Back to the “Mint Mojito” though.
Do you know what comes in a mojito? [Hint: it’s listed above.]
Of all the things that usually come in a mojito, the only one of them actually included in this smoothie is the mint.
MINT IS THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES IT A MOJITO SO MENTIONING IT IS REDUNDANT.
It’s like saying an orange mimosa, or bread toast, or a self-entitled Lohan.
To be fair, this drink is probably delicious, just incorrectly named. So incorrectly named that it drives me crazy every time I see it, which seems to be rather frequently these days.
DAMN YOU JUGGA JUICE!
