The Mirror Lake Mojito

The Mirror Lake Mojito

Alumni couple Meg Moorer '14 and Evan Moorer '15 make a Valentine’s Day cocktail the Buckeye way.

Are you and your Buckeye sweetheart missing the magic of the most romantic spot on campus? The Mirror Lake Mojito has you covered! Bright raspberries, cool mint and just enough sweetness make this Valentine’s Day cocktail the perfect treat to enjoy with your favorite Buckeye.

Alumni couple Meg and Evan Moorer love ’80s music and movies, making cocktails together and Ohio State football games (especially tailgating). Their advice to Buckeyes hoping to one day say “I do” is to take every opportunity to go to a game together — and always stick around for “Carmen Ohio”!



  • ½ lime, cut into wedges
  • A handful of fresh raspberries

  • Add the raspberries, lime wedges, sugar and most of the mint to your glass.

NOTE: To make the Mirror Lake Mocktail, just leave out the rum, double the sugar and add more soda water.
