National Mojito Day!

Today is National Mojito Day and I couldn’t think of a more fitting cocktail for this warm weather! The refreshing flavor of muddled mint, enhanced by sweet flavors of sugar and lime, all combined in one carbonated cocktail creates the ideal summer beverage. By now everyone is familiar with the classic Mojito recipe: rum, sugar, lime, mint leaves and club soda. That’s why today on this wonderful holiday I want to share some fun ways to shake up your Mojitos this holiday.
