Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Celebrates National Mojito Day on July 11th

(ATLANTIC CITY, NJ) -- It’s become the poster child of summer cocktails – a cool, refreshing mojito. This mint-forward, rum-based drink is so beloved that it has its own holiday that falls every year on July 11th. Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar in Atlantic City (inside Tropicana Casino & Resort) will celebrate National Mojito Day with $2 classic mojitos at the bar during happy hour, which runs 4:00pm to 7:00pm.

All mojitos are made with Cuba Libre White Rum, fresh pressed sugar cane (guarapo), lime juice, mint, and a splash of soda.  This rum-based highball was believed to have first been concocted in Havana, Cuba and its origins date back hundreds of years. Apparently, the early mojito was initially a medicinal drink that helped cure tropical diseases and ward off illnesses, but now it’s become one of the most popular drinks in the world!

On National Mojito Day, drink tickets will be given out at the door to guests 21 and older who are joining in the happy hour celebration. Limit of one ticket per person, which can be redeemed at the bar for one classic mojito. In addition to the holiday special, the regular Monday specials are available all day at the bar and dining room, including $25 Classic Mojito and Sangria pitchers and $30 flavored mojito pitchers.

The restaurant’s name, which translates to “a free Cuba,” signifies hope for the future of the treasured island nation. The company’s mission is to provide an “escape” to Havana through exciting food, beverage and entertainment experiences that celebrate the Cuban people and culture. Two-time James Beard award-winning Chef-Partner Guillermo Pernot’s menus feature tantalizing tastes that reflect Cuba’s culinary traditions, as well as the emerging modern cuisine that he is experiencing during his continuing travels to Cuba. Principals Barry Gutin and Larry Cohen bring a unique combination of hospitality and expertise to each of their projects and have been partners in the hospitality business since 1995.
