Mojito (drink)

The Mojito, pronounced /moʊˈhiːtoʊ/ (Spanish: [moˈxito]), is a classic Cuban cocktail with a rich history. Typically crafted from five key ingredients: white rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane juice), lime juice, soda water, and mint, it embodies a refreshing blend of sweetness, citrus tanginess, and herbaceous mint flavors, perfectly complementing the rum base. This delightful combination has made the Mojito a beloved beverage, especially during the summer months.

To prepare a Mojito, fresh lime juice is combined with sugar (or simple syrup) and mint leaves, gently muddled to release the mint’s essential oils without tearing the leaves. Rum is then added and briefly stirred to dissolve the sugar and ensure the mint is evenly distributed. The mixture is poured over crushed ice and topped with sparkling soda water for effervescence. A finishing touch of mint sprigs or lime wedges adds visual appeal.

In Cuba, Mojitos typically feature Mentha × villosa (known as yerba buena or hierbabuena), imparting a light minty-citrus aroma. However, outside of Cuba, spearmint, with its stronger mint aroma, is often used as a substitute.
