The perfect mojito is a classic Cuban cocktail recipe. This "short" mojito is made with rum, limes, fresh mint, and brown sugar.
fresh, no stems
Bacardi or Havana Blanco
use enough to fill the shaker 2/3 full
Roll the lime on a hard surface under the palm of your hands to make it juicy.
Cut the lime in half. Then cut each half into quarters.
In a cocktail shaker, squeeze the juice from 4-5 lime wedges into the shaker. Then drop the wedges inside.
Using a muddling stick, muddle (crush) the lime wedges in the bottom of the shaker to release the lime's essential oils.
Add 1 heaping Tbsp of brown sugar. If you are using sugar cubes, you will need to muddle again now.
Pour 50 mL white rum over the top of the limes and brown sugar.
Add ice to fill the shaker 2/3 full.
Gently tear your mint leaves in half and drop them into the shaker on top of the other ingredients. Do not muddle the mint.
Close the cocktail shaker and shake until it is ice cold.
You may subsitute 2 brown sugar cubes for 1 heaping Tbsp of brown sugar. Please note that our nutrition information is an approximation and may change depending on your choice of ingredients.
