Mojito Recipe by Robyn Webb

Cuban Mojitos

Cuban Mojito Recipe

History aside, it’s in the drinking of a properly prepared mojito that creates memories for the appointed bartender and the thirsty fans! Fortunately you won’t need a bevy of ingredients and probably right now, you have everything you need.

Your ingredients:

  • Sugar
  • Lime (about 1/2 of a large lime)
  • Spearmint ( about 5-6 leaves)
  • Cuban rum, about 2 ounces
  • Ice
  • Club soda 

Add the sugar, about a tablespoon or so, into a tall glass. Add in squeezes of lime and a few of the mint leaves. Using a muddler, then very gently grind the mint with the sugar and lime juice, being careful not to crush the leaves, only work more on applying pressure to the mint stem and try to keep the mint leaves intact. Add the rum, ice and a good splash of club soda. Now to finish, take 2 mint leaves and place them in an open palm. With your other palm, give the leaves a good slap and add them to the glass. This releases the final mint oil and makes the overall mojito taste nice and smooth. If you are lucky to have access to real fresh sugar cane, add a stick of it to the drink and use as a stirrer.
