It’s another scorcher this week in D.C. and we can’t think of a more refreshing drink to gulp down than a mojito. Whether you’re braving happy hour on the patio, or retreating indoors for some sweet, sweet air conditioning, check out these spots for the best places to grab a mojito and stay cool!
Cafe Citron actually has an entire day of the week set aside for mojitos during happy hour. Mojito Thursdays are an absolute blessing that includes $6 house mojitos from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and $8 specialty mojitos from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Maybe a traditional mojito isn’t your thing. You can choose from mango, coconut, passion fruit, strawberry, and more during happy hour.
Swing by Co Co. Sala between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. from Tuesday – Friday for their Chocolate and Bubbles Happy Hour. Make sure to try some $8 specialty cocktails, including their Co Cojito, a twist on the traditional lime and mint mojito that is made with chocolate infused vodka instead of rum (yum) and topped with dark chocolate flakes. Who says you can’t drink your dessert?
Where else can you get $6 mojitos and a special happy hour menu for kids? Habana village offers delicious traditional and reasonably priced small happy hour plates like tostones and chicken croquettes, plus a separate menu for kids from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. Stop by and cool off with a $6 traditional Cuban mojito (0r three) this week!
Happy hour every day of the week is a gift. Rumba Café offers food and drink specials, like $7 traditional Cuban mojitos, $5 rail drinks and beers, and $5 small plates. Make sure to check out Cuban artist, Ramon Menocal’s, exhibition that currently resides at Rumba Café while you relax and drink your worries away
Though mojitos are not a part of their happy hour, they are a mojito bar that does have happy hour. Meaning, if you spend less on food with their $4 tapas, you can buy more watermelon or blackberry mojitos made with fresh fruit. Check out their $4 beers and $5 wines daily from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., plus half off all wine bottles during happy hour on Tuesdays. Grab some snacks and mojitos and people watch on the patio overlooking AdMo.
