Today is not just Monday, July 11 but also National Mojito Day. So it’s time to celebrate with friends and family. Enjoy your summer with a refreshing mojito cocktail.
Drinking a cold cocktail on a hot day is such a treat. The classic mojito cocktail is made with the following ingredients – white rum, lime juice, cane sugar, soda water and of course mint.
Instead of serving up a standard mint mojito, be creative and experiment. An excellent choice is to use Cruzan Rum. Beat the heat with two, delicious cocktails – Cruzan Mango Mojito and Cruzan Coconut Mojito. Both of these cocktails are to die for and perfect for any social event.
The Cruzan Mango Mojito cocktail is made with fresh mango. It’s a perfect compliment to the bold and tropical flavor of Cruzan Mango Rum. The Cruzan Coconut Mojito uses Cruzan Aged Light Rum, as well as Cruzan Coconut Rum. Both rums are mixed with coconut and vanilla. The result is a unique and spectacular tasting cocktail.
Courtesy of Cruzan Rum, we wanted to share two cocktail recipes to enjoy on National Mojito Day or anytime of the year:
