Cuban Mojito

5:48 PM

My siblings and I are alcohol snobs, if we don't like the drink we have no problems sending it back and having it redone. One such drink was the mojito. That was my brother's drink of choice when we were traveling. My first time drinking a mojito was when I traveled to Cuba for a vacation, so it was the authentic mojito. It is definitely one of my favourite drinks. I got this recipe from Taste of Cuba.

Cuban Mojito recipe

1 teaspoon powdered sugar
Juice from 1 lime (2 ounces)
4 mint leaves
1 sprig of mint
Havana Club white Rum (2 ounces)
2 ounces club soda

Place the mint leaves into a long mojito glass (often called a "collins" glass) and squeeze the juice from a cut lime over it. You'll want about two ounces of lime juice, so it may not require all of the juice from a single lime. Add the powdered sugar, then gently smash the mint into the lime juice and sugar with a muddler (a long wooden device pictured below, though you can also use the back of a fork or spoon if one isn't available). Add ice (preferably crushed) then add the rum and stir, and top off with the club soda (you can also stir the club soda in as per your taste). Garnish with a mint sprig.
