Old Black Bear is one of my favorite spots to hang out in Madison. Delicious eats, craft beer and a great atmosphere make for the best place to spend a weekend night.

The drink: Peach Mojito

The deets: Dark rum, muddled mint and lime, peach puree, simple syrup, soda

2. Phat Sammy’s

The Hokkaido Beach highball from Phat Sammy’s isn’t technically a mojito, but with white rum, lime, mint and soda water, we think it fits the bill. Head to the tiki-themed restaurant and bar for a tropical getaway right in downtown Huntsville.

The drink: Hokkaido Beach

The deets: Cruzan white rum, mint lime peel syrup, highball soda

3. Rhythm on Monroe

Which will you choose? (Rhythm on Monroe / Facebook)

The Von Braun Center’s resident rooftop bar offers creative, music-themed takes on the classics. See if you can find all the musical easter eggs in their menu.

The drink: Back in Blackberry Mojito

The deets: Cruzan light rum, lime juice, blackberry syrup, mint, club soda

4. Revivalist

Downtown Huntsville’s newest boutique hotel, 106 Jefferson, has an in-house restaurant that you don’t want to miss. Try Revivalist’s signature Bay Dream drink, which takes heavy inspiration from the classic mojito.
