I start each day with a green smoothie. Wait, no, the bartender's saying it's called a "Mojito."
However you want to spend your summer, there is nothing quite like sipping a cocktail (or mocktail for that matter) in the sun to enliven the season.
The Spiced Mojito originates on rumba rhythms from faraway Cuba, ready to invigorate our long sunny days and hot nights with a fresh combination of spiced rum, mint, lime, sugar, sparkling soda, and lots of crushed ice.
The Mojito's precise history may be slightly hazy, however, the cocktail became extremely popular in the 1930s, in the beautiful Cuban capital of Havana, before being helped to worldwide popularity by the likes of celebrities Brigitte Bardot, Errol Flynn, and Ernest Hemingway.
Wherever you take yours, drink responsibly; a non alcoholic "Nojito" is also available.
