Saturday, July 11th, is National Mojito Day, and with the triple-digit temperatures anticipated to last all weekend, I can't imagine a better time to enjoy a nice refreshing sweet, minty rum drink with fresh lime.

The National Day calendar suggests that people should observe National Mojito Day by "mix[ing] up a pitcher to enjoy Mojitos with friends on the patio or deck. It will hit the spot on a hot summer day, too. (Remember always to drink responsibly and never to drink and drive.) Post on social media using #NationalMojitoDay"

Since most bars are closed unless food is also being served, below are some mojito recipes that you might enjoy making at home. Don't forget to invite me!

Feel free to post your favorite spot to find the best mojito maker in town, too.
