Th Classic Cuban Mojito

A Mojito, championed by Hemmingway in the late 1940s is a traditional Cuban cocktail and cousin of the Brazilian cocktail Caipirinha.

It became popular worldwide in the late 1980s and is still very popular today. This cocktail is sweet although refreshing with its citrus and mint taste, this tones down the taste of the rum.
