This traditional Cuban drink, pronounced Moh-HEE-toh, is a fantastic summer refresher. The authentic Mojito Drink Recipe includes the muddling of mint leaves. Due to this time consuming task, a mojito is not a favorite drink amongst busy nightclub bartenders. Nonetheless, still gaining wildly in popularity around the world….here’s the Mojito!

What you need:

  • 2oz white Rum
  • 2 teaspoons sugar (liquid, powder or crystal)
  • 1 lime
  • 10-12 mint leaves
  • 1 sprig of mint
  • club soda
  • muddler (Click Here if you want to buy one from barstore.)
  • spoon
  • straw
  • ice – preferably shaved


What you do:

  • Step 1
      Cut the lime into wedges and place them in the glass with 10-12 mint leaves and sugar

      Pour in 2oz of white rum
  • Step 5
