National Mojito Day | Classic Mojito Cocktail

Welcome to one of the best days of the year – National Mojito Day!

Mojitos are one of my favorite drinks because not only can you add other flavors to it, like strawberry, but they are really hard to mess up. It’s just rum, simply syrup, mint, lime, and seltzer water. Ta-da!

I usually go for a classic or strawberry mojito, but this time I chose classic because it really is my favorite. Plus, my strawberries had gone bad. UGH, they sometimes go bad so fast!

What is your favorite mojito flavor?

    I personally learned the art of Mojito making from a bartender. The only difference I see is that I muddled the lime with the mint. So good job Jen! I’m with you. On a hot day nothing beats a Mojito!

      Your mojito is better than mine. I must learn your ways.
