Hope your week is off to a good start. With summer officially here, there is no better way to kickstart this weekend than by celebrating National Mojito Day on Friday, July 11, with the Cruzan Peach Dream Mojito. While a traditional mojito is made with white rum, lime and fresh mint, the Cruzan Peach Dream Mojito modernizes this recipe with juicy Cruzan Peach Rum, lavender bitters and honey syrup.
