Head’s up Mojito fans — National Mojito Day is this Saturday, July 11th. Because you like booze and fancy cocktails as much as we do, we want you to indulge in this classic, sweet and minty Cuban cocktail in Philadelphia and beyond. A few locations are offering special mojitos for the day and we think you should check them out and report back to us. Consider it a “research project” for us. 🙂
