Mojito Cocktail Recipe

Despite controversy over it’s exact origin, Cuba is thought to be the place of birth of the mojito. As it was known that the local Indians had certain remedies for tropical illnesses, a small party of sailors landed on Cuba and brought back an effective medicine made from a moon shine rum-type alcohol mixed with mint, lime, and sugar cane syrup.

A drink called El Draque, or the Cuban moonshine, was introduced to Cuba by pirate Drake who soon substituted rum for the moonshine. The drink became known as the Mojito after the rum replaced the moonshine. An ideal cocktail for any summer occasion, this trendy version of the mojito is classic yet stylish.
