The mojito originated in Cuba as a farmers’ drink in the late 19th century as Cuba’s rum industry modernized, making the mojito as common as beer. Only the rich drank it with ice and soda. This version is straightforward and simply perfect for a hot day. You are sure to enjoy this. We sure do!
6 large fresh mint leaves
2 tsp extra fine sugar
2 fresh squeezed limes (with equal parts water)
1 oz. club soda
3 oz. BACARDÍ Superior rum
- Grab yourself a 12 oz glass (I prefer a mason jar) and place 6 large mint leaves (add more accordingly if the leave are small) and add 2 tsp of extra fine sugar. Mix it well for a good 2 minutes.
- Add 2 squeezed limes mixed with equal parts water.
- Fill the glass with ice and add 1 oz. club soda and 3 oz. Bacardi Superior Rum.
- Stir well and serve.
