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.
