This signature drink is characterized by the presence of mint and lime, hence it is essential to get both of these ingredients fresh from the market. Traditionally this Cuban cocktail uses spearmint or yerba buena if you can get your hands on that nothing like it, fresher the ingredients, stronger the taste and the aroma. You will also need some granulated or powdered sugar, Havana club white rum, a few mint leaves, juice from one lime, crushed ice and Havana club soda.

GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS

In a Collin glass, place 4 mint leaves, and squeeze the juice of a lemon (2 ounces) over it. Now it’s time to add the powdered/granulated sugar, using the back of a muddler, or a spoon gently start crushing the mint leaves, slowly infusing the mixture with the taste and scent of the leaves. It is essential to be gentle while crushing the leaves as you don’t want to over crush them, which will only result in a strong bitter taste. Add some ice, preferably crushed ice, enough to fill half of the glass then stir in about 2 ounces of the Havan white rum.

Lastly, you could either top up the glass with the Havana club soda or you could also stir it in, depending on how you enjoy your drink. If you don’t like a very sweet mojito you could add some angostura bitters to cut off the sweetness.Don’t forget to add a few mint sprigs and a slice of lime as a garnish, you could also coat the rim of the glass with some powdered sugar, this, however, is totally optional.
You will also notice some recipes state that you must crush lemon wedges with the mint leaves, in order to infuse the drink with their scent, however, what may happen is the skin of the lemon if crushed extensively could start to let out its bitterness which may only ruin this cocktail.

It’s now time to reward all of your efforts. Cheers !
