The oncoming warm summer days full of barbecues and beach days means it’s the perfect time to relax with a highly-refreshing cocktail; may we suggest a mojito? The iconic Cuban drink combines sweetness, citrus, and mint, and is even rumored to be a favorite by author Ernest Hemingway.

This National Mojito Day, Apeel is utilizing sustainable limes to make our own version of the favored indulgence with a twist. Made with longer-lasting Apeel Limes, here is one of our treasured recipes for a delicious and fresh mint mojito that also helps to reduce food waste. Raise a glass using our delightful wasteless in-house recipe. This recipe makes 1 serving and is courtesy of Apeel’s IT Manager, Danny Gonzalez. Sip and enjoy!
