Description

The Mojito is a traditional Cuban cocktail that has become popular worldwide. It is known for its refreshing and zesty flavor, making it a perfect drink for hot weather. Here’s a classic recipe for making a Mojito:

Ingredients:

  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 1/2 ounces white rum
  • 1/2 cup club soda

Instructions:

  1. Muddle the Mint and Lime:
    • Place mint leaves and one lime wedge into a sturdy glass.
    • Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice.
    • Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice.
    • Do not strain the mixture.
  2. Add Ice and Rum:
    • Fill the glass almost to the top with ice cubes.
    • Pour the rum over the ice.
  3. Top with Club Soda:
    • Add club soda to the glass.
    • Stir, taste, and add more sugar if desired.
  4. Garnish and Serve:
    • Garnish with the remaining lime wedge and a sprig of mint.
    • Serve with a straw.

Tips for a Perfect Mojito:

  • Mint: Use fresh mint for the best flavor. Spearmint is the traditional variety used in mojitos.
  • Lime: Fresh lime juice is essential. Avoid bottled lime juice as it doesn’t provide the same freshness.
  • Rum: White rum is typically used in mojitos. Choose a good quality rum for a smoother taste.
  • Sweetener: Adjust the amount of sugar to your taste. Some recipes call for simple syrup instead of granulated sugar.
  • Club Soda: Add just enough club soda to taste. The soda adds a bit of fizziness to the drink.
