Celebrate National Mojito Day With a Classic Recipe
Today marks National Mojito Day, a holiday we wholeheartedly support because, let's face it: there's no drink more refreshing than the classic mojito. The light, fizzy, tart, herbaceous cocktail was originally created in Cuba and made with yerba buena, a type of spearmint. These days, different variations and flavors of the mojito can be found all over the world.
The ingredients for the classic version are simple — rum, sugar, lime juice, sparkling water, and mint — but the resulting cocktail is absolutely sublime.
