Seven days of voting has lead up to now–the first official minute of summer–where we’re finally revealing the quintessential cocktail of the season. Cheers to this refreshing blend of rum, mint, lime, sugar, and sparkling soda, invented hundreds of years ago in Cuba and which has since (with the help of famous fans like Hemingway) catapulted to ultimate summer sipper status.
Mix up the mojito the traditional way, or try out one of the many variations: Our three-ingredient Minty Lime Frozen Mojito is perfect for a quick refresher on hot days, the Limoncello Mojito is a crowd pleaser with its tart, lemony finish, and the Holiday Mojito–made with cranberries and orange bitters–is a favorite for those who prefer more fruity flavors.
Our personal favorite for seaside sipping? The Coconut Mojito (pictured above), which has all the elements that compose the language of sand and sea: white rum, coconut rum, limes, coconut cream, and even a spoonful of brown sugar. Happy summer, and happy sipping!
