Today is June 11th or as we prefer to celebrate - National Mojito Day! The mojito is a refreshing and perfect drink for any hot summer day. National Mojito Day is when it is almost obligatory to enjoy a few of these delicious cocktails. 

Here at Iowa Legendary, we have our own spin on the classic mojito. Our White Label Rye makes a delicious substitute in rum and gin drinks. When featured in a mojito, the White Label Rye brings an element of flavor and depth that enhances even the best mojitos!

What is a Mojito?

The mojito is a classic mixed drink from Cuba that traditionally features rum, mint, and lime. It is easily one of the world’s most popular and iconic drinks. During the summer heat, a mojito is a must-have for cooling off and relaxing. On top of being popular, the mojito is very easy to make. This recipe only requires a few fresh ingredients and it can make anyone appear as a world-class mixologist. Easily whipped up in minutes, mojitos are a light and delicious crowd-pleaser for any event this summer.
