DOWN THE SHORE: Mojito Monday! July 11th


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

 $2 Classic Mojitos for Guests during Special Happy Hour

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (July 5, 2022)--It’s become the poster child of summer cocktails – a cool, refreshing mojito. This mint-forward, the 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 from 4 to 7 p.m.


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.

Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Atlantic City is located inside the Tropicana Atlantic City (2801 Pacific Avenue). To make reservations, please visit or call the restaurant at 609-348-6700.
