National Mojito Day
Bluewater has staked its claim on National Mojito Day, a July 11 national holiday dedicated to the traditional Cuban mix of white rum, sugar, lime juice, sparkling water and mint. All seven Bluewaters get into the summer siesta spirit July 11 with $6 Cucumber Mint Mojitos all day long.
All seven Bluewater restaurants – including Bluewater Grills in Newport, Tustin, Redondo, Temecula and Phoenix; Bluewater Boathouse Seafood Grill on Coronado Island and Bluewater Avalon on Catalina Island – will be serving a special Cucumber Mint Mojito for just $6 all day on July 11.
Reputed to be a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, the drink dating back to Cuba in the 1500’s has become a summertime favorite thanks to its lower alcohol content and combination of sweetness, citrus and mint flavors. Bluewater’s special version adds cucumber.
Holiday celebrants are advised to pair the drink with Bluewater seafood and shellfish favorites from each restaurant’s Small Plates Menu for the perfect summer siesta.
