How to Make Mojitos
We owe the origin of the Mojito to the Country of Cuba. Thank God for the Cuban's because this is one of my favorite Summer Cocktails. Nothing beats the cold minty refreshing taste of the Mojito on a hot summer day!
Let's Learn How to Make a Classic Mojito
Classic Mojito Recipe
4 to 5 fresh mint leaves
1/2 Lime, cut into 4 wedges
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 1/2 OZ White Rum
Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into your mixing glass.
Use your Muddler to crush the mint and lime. This releases oils in the mint and the juice from the lime.
Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again.
Fill the glass 3/4 full of ice.
Pour the rum over the ice, and fill the glass soda water.
Give a good stir to mix.
Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.
If you can. Use Natural Cane Sugar. It will really bring out the flavor of the drink.
Try a dark rum Mojito. The dark rum has more caramel flavors and can be a nice change.

Other Mojito Recipes
If you want to experiment with your Mojito try adding other fruit to your drink.
Here are a few examples.
Pineapple Mojito - Muddle 4 small slices of Fresh Pineapple. Reduce the amount of sugar as the Pineapple adds sweetness on it's own.
Strawberry Mojito - Muddle 2 Strawberries.
Orange Mojito - Muddle 3 Orange Slices. The lime and citrus are a great combination of freshness.
