Cocktail – Mojito

The mojito was born on the island of Cuba and is one of the nation’s oldest cocktails. The drink has a disputed history. Some say the drink was developed in the 1500’s when the famed explorer Sir Francis Drake landed in the city of Havana, in order to sack the city of its gold. While the invasion was unsuccessful, an associate of Sir Francis Drake, named Richard Drake, created an early version of the mojito called ” El Draque ” out of aguardiente ( a crude form of rum,) sugar, lime, and mint. Others say the drink was invented by African slaves working in the Cuban sugar cane fields. The name ” mojito ” stems from the African word of ” mojo ” which means to place a little spell. In the mid-1800’s the creation of the Bacardi company bolstered the popularity of the mojito even more. While we may never know the true origin of the drink, the tasty combination of lime and mint is sure to stick around for years to come. Here’s how to create your own at home.
