Miami's official cocktail should be yours as well

This refreshing minty rum drink has a stronghold as "most popular cocktail" in warm weather hotspots like Miami and of course its homeland of Cuba. We love it all year long but especially in the summer when fresh mint is growing right outside our windows. Grab your muddler and toast the weekend with a mojito.
