Summer Sips: Cuba Cuba

June 7 2010, 9:42 AM
It seems as if summer has officially arrived---95 degrees and all. Which means we're headed to Cuba Cuba to cool off with Mojitos. The Golden Triangle-located favorite, which smells brightly of freshly muddled mint and lime, makes the city's most potent and refreshing highball. The spot also mixes souped-up varieties---blackberry, pineapple, and strawberry among them---but we're partial to the traditional blend of white rum, sugar, soda, and mint. Either way, take advantage of Mojito happy hour, which runs Monday through Thursday, from 5 to 6:15 p.m. Bonus: Ward off hunger with an order of the plantain chips (we can't get enough of the zesty garlic-lime-olive-oil mojo) and the hearts of palm and avocado–studded insalata Cubano. 1173 Delaware St., 303-605-2822
