COCONUT MOJITO

 

Havana, Cuba is the birthplace of the Mojito, with the original origin of this classic cocktail a conversation of debate. One story takes us back to the 16th century drink known as “El Draque” after the circumnavigator Sir Francis Drake, while historians contend that African slaves who worked the Cuban sugar cane fields during the 19th century are actually responsible for the cocktail’s existence.

Today, variations of this rum-based highball can be found all over the world, and this season, we’re adding a festive twist of our own. The Coconut Mojito with our Savannah Spirits Silver Rum and pomegranate seeds provides the perfect festive vibe to any holiday event.
