Mojito500

A variation of the Spanish word mojar meaning ‘to wet’ this cocktail is a  popular Cuban drink created at La Floridita in Havana, and – along with the daiquiri – was one of Hemingway’s favorites.

  • 2 tsp white sugar
  • 1 lime cut into wedges
  • 4 sprigs of fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup white rum
  • 2 cups club soda
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • lime wedges or slices for garnish

Place 1 tsp of sugar into each of two 12 ounce glasses.

Squeeze the juice from a lime wedge into each glass, drop in the wedge, and add 2 sprigs of mint.

Muddle the the sugar, lime juice, and mint together, then fill halfway with ice.

Add 1/4 cup rum into each glass, and then finish off with club soda.

Stir, then garnish with lime.

Serves: 2
