Nicely composed and well lit. DOF cuts off the straws and garnish which knocks a mark off from me; otherwise excellent

Care to join me for an afternoon drink ? I've been told Mojitos are delightful, though have never had the opportunity to try one.

Beautiful lighting on the end glasses, slight glare on the middle one.
