NATIONAL MOJITO DAY

Each year on July 11th, people across America join together to celebrate National Mojito Day.

Known to be a favorite drink of author, Ernest Hemingway, Mojito is a traditional Cuban highball consisting of white rum, sugar, lime juice, sparkling water and mint.

With a low alcohol content, this refreshing cocktail has found popularity in the summertime as its combination of sweetness, citrus and mint flavors complement the kick of rum.

Lime wedges and mint leaves garnish an ice filled glass of Mojito. 

Although born in Cuba, the exact origin of the Mojito is under debate with theory’s beginning in 1586.

NATIONAL RAINIER CHERRY DAY

In 1952 at Washington State University, Harold Fogle created a new cherry by cross-breeding the Bing and Van cherry varieties.  This new cherry was named after Mount Rainier.  Now, each year on July 11th,  National Rainier Cherry Day is observed.

Rainier cherries are sweet cherries that have a thin skin and a thick creamy-yellow flesh.  They are a temperamental crop that are very sensitive to temperature, wind and rain.  Each season almost one-third of their crop is eaten by birds.

Due to their superior taste, Rainiers are considered a premium cherry.

As part of it’s Tree-to-Table program, on July 11, in honor of National Rainier Cherry Day, the Northwest Cherry Growers have hand-picked one restaurant in each state that will take part in their program in which each of the 50 restaurants will be dishing up at least one signature menu item featuring fresh cherries from the Northwest highlighting delicious Rainier cherries.
