Mojito Mania Is Here!
Check Out The Perfect Mojito


The mojito goes with me way back. Each bartender has his or hers special recipe. The best thing is that no matter what recipe you choose - It's a winner!

This is the national drink of Cuba ( and one of Earnest Hemingway's favorite drinks...). It is just what you need on a Caribbean vacation or just a hot summer day or night - a refreshing cold rum cocktail with a sweet and sour flavor...

On this page you will find the traditional cuban recipe. If you are looking for other interesting versions of this cocktail, check out my other mojitos: the Watermelon, Blackberry, Passion Fruit, Pear or the amazing Kumquat - a great cool cocktail with an asian twist...

You can crush ice by putting ice cubes in 2 plastic bags and then throwing the bag on the floor a few times.
