Cocktails at Home: National Mojito Day – Pursuitist

National Mojito Day is on July 11th, and we want to help you celebrate with a delicious mojito from Ron Zacapa.

Ron Zacapa rums are made from sugar cane harvested in southern Guatemala, which is pressed into virgin sugar cane honey. Its aging process is sophisticated and slower allowing for more time for the aromas and flavors to combine. It is led by female master blender Lorena Vásquez, a trailblazing female in the spirits world.  Enjoy!





• 1 1/2 oz Zacapa 23 Rum

• 1 oz Lime Juice

• 6-8 mint leaves, fresh

• 1 tbsp of simple syrup OR sugar
