Mojito Cocktails - Florida Keys

Makes: 1 cool cocktail     Difficulty: Very Easy     Meal: Beverage    

From my RV kitchen

Tart and sweet at the same time, these delicious mojito cocktails (or "faux-itos" if you don't drink alchol) are sure to please. Great for any warm summer night be it on the shore or in your backyard. 

A mojito (pronounced mo-HEE-toe), one of Cuba’s oldest cocktails, comes from the African word mojo, which means to place a little spell. Ernest Hemingway fancied them at La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana and is noted for bringing the mojito to his beloved Key West.

2 t - heaping - ultrafine sugar
12 spearmint leaves - organic if possible
1 lime - halved - organic if possible
1 oz (1 shot) of rum - high quality brand
4 oz club soda


In mojito glass add sugar. Add spearmint leaves to glass. Juice one half of the lime - quarter the other half. Add juice then lime quarters to glass. Muddle until quarters are juiced, mint is bruised and scent is divine. Stir, add rum, ice and club soda. Stir and garnish with a spring of spearmint or a lime wedge.

Additional Tips

Careful...these go down fast and easy. Omit the rum and you'll have a "faux"-ito!
