It's Mojito Time!

The capital of Cuba, Havana is where the cool and crisp Mojito was born. The Mojito is one of the top performing rum cocktails in the world in fact! The secret is in the recipe, the simplest approach wins every time. A winning combo of white rum, lime juice, soda water, sugar and mint for some reason just works! The technique of 'Stirred not shaken' is also important as the stir technique creates a different texture. If you aren't much of a sweet tooth swap out your soda water with Angostura bitters this was what some hotels in Havana used so it brings a bit more of a sour taste to the drink.
