National Mojito Day is this Monday, July 11, and Cuba Libre (located at 9th & H Streets, NW in Penn Quarter, DC), Washington's expert on all things rum, is celebrating its signature rum drink with $5 Classic Mojitos at the bar ALL DAY!
The cocktail, made popular by Ernest Hemingway in Cuba decades ago, is made with hand-pressed sugar cane (called guarapo), fresh lime juice, mint, Cuba Libre White Rum and a splash of soda. The special is available for one day only in celebration of one of Cuba Libre’s favorite holidays, and the $5 classic mojitos will be available starting at 11:30 a.m. Boozy lunch to kick off the week, anyone?
The $5 classic mojitos will continue throughout the day, so guests can post up at the bar starting at lunch, or pair the special with one of Cuba Libre’s new dinner items – the full menu is available at the bar all day.
See you Monday! Maybe we can sell 27,000 classic mojitos in one day....?
