Who wouldn't love a refreshing muddled mint cocktail on a muggy day like today? The folks over at Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill have kindly shared their recipe for the East Meets West Mojito in honor of today's food holiday, National Mojito Day.

Located in Studio City and El Segundo, Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill puts together a tasty combination of the traditional mojito by using bourbon instead of rum, and adding some passionfruit iced tea. Customers who come in for the happy hour from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. get $2 off the cocktail. But you can also make it on your own. Here's how it's done:
