The Mojito originated in Cuba in the 1910s.
A simple blend of sugar, mint leaves, lime juice, rum, ice, and soda water (strictly in that order), a Mojito is a tall glass sparkling with bubbles and greenery, garnished with a sprig of mint on top.
Cut lime into small pieces.
Add 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Add 1 sprig fresh mint.
Muddle well with wooden muddling stick.
Add crushed ice. Top up with rum.
Serve with a spoon (never with a straw).
