The mojito, a rum and muddled mint-based concoction of Cuban origin, is one of summer’s most refreshing cocktails (read: you can drink it during the day). Grab a variation on the classic at one, or all, of these Los Angeles mojito destinations.
Paradise Cove: Dig your toes in the sand while enjoying a pineapple mojito at this Malibu beachfront café, (which is next door to the fabled chi-chi trailer park where mobile homes have been known to sell for $2 million). You’ll too feel like a million bucks as you watch the sun go down over the Pacific while sipping on Paradise Cove’s generously tall cocktail, which is muddled with freshly prepared pineapple puree and sugar cane juice.
