Mojito

Mojito

The Mojito is arguably the best of the classic Cuban cocktails. Mint, lime and rum are combined to produce an elegant and refreshing cocktail. Its a moreish cooler and a popular choice all around the world. Despite this, if made badly a Mojito can be undrinkable. The secret is to muddle the Mint gently, ensuring it's only lightly bruised. The mint flavour should be balanced nicely with the rum and lime flavours rather than dominating them. Top up sparingly with soda to keep dilution of the key ingredients to a minimum.
