September, also known as Rum Month at SIGLERinPLACE! This week's Siglocktail is the Mojito! Bright, bubbly, and refreshing. Perfect for this super hot Southern California week. (It's almost 100 degrees today, which is pretttttty
hot for this town!) In the video, I mention that the mojito is the national drink of Cuba, but I think it might be one of several! (The Libre, made of rum, cola and lime is another.) Whatever the truth, it's delicious in warm weather and perfect for late summer! Recipe below in case you want the quickest route to this tasty drink! If you have a bit more time, watch the video to see how to make this delish drink directly in the glass! As ever, livestream is tomorrow night and Thursday night at 6pm PST and we'll be toasting with these yummy cocktails. Feel free to make this one (send us pics here
if you do!) but as ever, you drink whatever you like best, or nothing at all, no worries! MOJITO RECIPE: Ingredients:
