Mojitos are a traditional Cuban drink which are made with white rum, club soda, sugar, limes, mint, and ice.
When I went to Cuba in the summer of 2018, I spent the entire trip drinking mojitos and daiquiris. I had a mojito in Ernest Hemmingway’s home at Hotel Ambos Mundos, which is an awesome thing to be able to say. Okay, let’s be honest - I had a mojito at El Floridita, La Guarida, and Hotel Nacional! I had to, I was in Havana! Needless to say, this drink is so refreshing.
Mojitos are now thoroughly enjoyed in the United States and are so quick and easy to make. All you need are mint leaves, sugar, limes, club soda, ice, and RUM. Jack Sparrow would kill me if I forgot the rum. In place of club soda, you can use sparkling water. You can stir the drink so it’s not necessary to use a shaker.
I would highly recomment making these mojitos for your next happy hour or a day drinking scenario. It is a great way to get the fiesta going and is always a crowd pleaser!
How to make mojitos
In a shaker, muddle the mints and one lime wedge. Add the rest of the lime wedges and the sugar and keep muddling. Add rum and ice into the shaker and shake well. Pour into a glass and add a lime wedge on the rim. Enjoy!
