Did you know it's National Mojito Day? It is! And Team EDF wants to celebrate -- will you join us?
Today's drink recipe comes straight from our July/August issue (have you downloaded it yet?). Its intensely tangy flavor is the product of lemons and limes, but it's the white rum that really makes this drink worthy of a party. Get the recipe after the break. Happy holiday!
