NATIONAL MOJITO DAY
Each year on July 11th, people across America join together to mark National Mojito Day.
Known to be a favorite drink of author, Ernest Hemingway, the 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 for its refreshing combination of sweetness, citrus and mint flavors.
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 theories with origins as early as 1586.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Mix up a pitcher to enjoy mojitos with friends on the patio or deck. (Remember to always drink responsibly and to never drink and drive) Post on social media using #NationalMojitoDay.
