July 11th Is Mojito Day! Celebrate With Japanese Style Yuzu Mojito!

What Is Mojito Day?


Each year on July 11th, people across America raise a glass to mark National Mojito Day. The mojito ranks among the nation's favorite cocktails and is traditionally made with white rum, lime juice, sugar, mint, and sparkling water. Although born in Cuba, the exact origin of the Mojito remains under debate with roots as early as 1586.


While the holiday is observed in America, we think this created holiday should be called International Mojito Day, as it is one of the most popular cocktails around the world!


On this Mojito Day, we invite you to try a Japanese interpretation of mojito made with yuzu liqueur. Although it does not include rum as the base spirit, this a great cocktail for those who prefer a lower alcohol content and want something with a twist!


Mojito With CHOYA Yuzu


CHOYA Yuzu is a sweet tasting liqueur made with the filtered pulp of the yuzu fruit. Always committed to the pursuit of high quality and authenticity using only natural ingredients in all CHOYA products, CHOYA Yuzu is made with only top-quality Japanese yuzu citrus freshly picked in Shikoku Island (the major region for cultivating yuzu in Japan).


Fresh yuzu citrus juice and 100% natural ingredients are used in this yuzu liqueur. As all CHOYA products, it is made without acidity regulators, flavorings, colorings, and artificial sweeteners, so you can enjoy the true flavor of the yuzu. It has a sleek frosty bottle with simple yet beautiful Japanese design.


CHOYA Yuzu is excellent for making great tasting cocktails. Follow the recipe below to make the refreshing Yuzu Mojito cocktail!
