Mojito is traditionally a Cuban highball. Traditionally, this cocktail consists of 5 main ingredients: lime juice, white rum, soda water, sugar (usually sugarcane juice), and mint. Originally, the Cuban recipe makes use of yerba Buena or spearmint, a type of mint that’s very common on the island.

The Mojito’s birthplace is Havana, Cuba although the specific origin is yet to be determined. There is a story that traces the origin of Mojito to a similar drink from the 16th century called “El Draque”, named after Francis Drake. The ingredients for El Draque were aguardiente de cana or burning water, mint, sugarcane juice and lime. Although the drink was not known as Mojito then, it was however originally made by combining these ingredients.

Mojito is a very well-known summer drink because it is made up of the combination of citrus, mint flavors, and sweetness that’s meant to complement the white rum. The alcohol content of the cocktail is relatively low (it has about 10% alcohol).Do not forget to store some mojito cocktail in a water bottle from Vaya to sip through the day.

The Mojito cocktail is one of the most popular highballs that are based on rum. The Mojito has a lot of versions.

How to make Mojito

  1. Place the 4 lime wedges in a glass. Add the castor sugar and squish everything together or muddle so as to release some lime juice.
  2. Put the fresh mint leaves on your hand and clap. The leaves will be bruised and the aroma will be released. Rub the rim of the long glass around with the mint leaves before dropping them in.
  3. Use a bar spoon, a muddler or a rolling pin to push the mint further down into the juice.
  4. Fill the glass to half with crushed ice before pouring in the two parts of Bacardi Carti Blanca. Use the spoon to stir the mixture together for 2 minutes or till all the sugar dissolves.
  5. Use the soda water and the crushed ice to top it up. Also, use the sprig of fresh mint to garnish it. Your chill Mojito is ready to serve.
