Mumbai’s Glocal Junction Is Hosting A Mojito Festival & We Got You Some Easy Recipes

By  | 

The weekend is here and a Mojito is just what you need to get into party mode! We’ve taken the initiative and brought to you just the fix you need.

The guys at Glocal Junction have come up with some funky combinations for the cocktail lover in you. If you haven’t been here yet, then please just cancel your weekend plans and head on over. It’s a lively joint with a great vibe, perfect for ’em #WeekendVibes.

Now for the good stuff, the ongoing Mojito Festival at Glocal has 9 brand new out-of-the-box Mojitos for you to try. These are off the regular menu and are available July 17.

Straight off the bat, our ears perked up when we were introduced to the Cohiba Partner. Muskmelon, ginger, and mint — now that’s a combination of flavours that you haven’t heard of in a Mojito, have you?

The medley of flavours comes together like an explosion in your mouth and of the 9, this one’s our absolute favourite.

Scroll down and check out the recipes of 2 quick mojitos you can try at home this weekend!
