In Spain Summer has well and truly arrived.
In the evening there´s nothing nicer that finding a cool outdoor terrace or beach bar to enjoy the cool breeze after a long hot day.
Sipping on a freshly made Mojito is a perfect summer treat to enjoy every now and then.
Here are some places I been over past summers in different parts of Spain.
Mojitos in Granada
In Granada a great place for Mojitos and any other drink for that matter the Rooftop terrace at Panoramic 360 (open daily from 9pm til late)
This outdoor rooftop bar has fabulous views of the whole of Granada. Great for those pinky orange sunsets around 9.15pm (check times as summer moves on)
In town head to Ayre café & Mojitos on calle Duquesa (by Plaza Trinidad) Here they serve fruity Strawberry Mojitos. They also do other flavours too. Melon Mojitos, mango…
This is a small kooky bar also offers delicious breakfasts too.
I have to try the Casa Cubaña de Nancy in Granada yet, I´ve heard that the mojitos are great there.
Alameda Apodaca Cadiz
Chairs and tables are set up in the Paseo Alameda Apodaca only at night. This promenade is filled with lush exotic palms, plants and trees. The Atlantic Ocean is just 100 metres from the tables and provides a gentle evening breeze.
This is a lovely setting for a drink to end the day.
Drinks in Cordoba
When I visited Cordoba in Summertime it was Scorchio. Both of my visits were in June and in August. (If you can choose go from Sept to May!)
After having some cold beers and tapas at the Bodegas Campos on my recent visit. The most appetising dessert was an icy Mojito Sorbet (non-alcoholic)
If you actually want a mojito with alcohol I was recommended Sojo by the river by a local. (this is on my list for my next visit)
Areia in Madrid
I have to include Areia chill out in the Chueca district. This great place has a large selection of cocktails and mojitos. It does get pretty busy but I had a great time there.
Last Summer I was completely surprised by Malaga. I didn’t expect the historic part of Malaga to have as many interesting places or the charm that it does.
I enjoyed a fresh Mojito at Cafe Negro opposite the Alcazaba on a hot Summer night.
The best place on the list. The Chiringuito de Diego is on the beach at Aguadulce. I just adore this place. (close to Hotel Playadulce)
You can actually sit on the beach with your feet in the sand if you really want too. It makes me feel that I´m far away in the Caribbean.
The colonial style of the interiors and the waves lapping on the shore make a perfect setting. They also serve food if you prefer to have dinner here.
Mojito in Barcelona
In Barcelona there are heaps of places to try. A couple I like are Tres Rosas & Copetin.
Tres Rosas is a small cosy bar just behind Correos building at the bottom of Via Laietana. I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere there.
Copetin is somewhere I remember from years back. (around 1999 probably) This lively bar in the Born district has been running for over 20 years and is a fun place to go.
