July 11th is National Mojito Day, a time to relax with a tall glass of rum, ice, sugar and mint.

While we’re great fans of the original Mojito recipe, here‘s a variation from Cruzan rum, a distiller that makes both conventional and flavored rums on the Caribbean island of St. Croix:
 
COCONUT MOJITO RECIPE

  • 1 part coconut rum
  • 8-10 mint leaves
  • 2 lime wedges

  • Coconut water or coconut soda (check at Latin American markets)
  • Ice cubes

  •

    You can add cranberry juice to make a Cranberry Mojito, or muddle raspberries for a Raspberry Mojito.

    MOJITO HISTORY

    The mojito (moe-HEE-toe) is a quintessential Cuban cocktail. The name derives from the African voodoo term mojo, to cast a small spell.

    The drink can be traced to 1586, when Sir Francis Drake and his pirates unsuccessfully attempted to sack Havana for its gold. His associate,* Richard Drake (a possible distant relative), was said to have invented a mojito-like cocktail known as El Draque, “The Drake.” It was made with aguardiente, a crude forerunner of rum, sugar, lime and mint.

    Around the mid-1800s, rum was substituted and the cocktail became known as a Mojito.
