Like the martini, the mojito is another solid, classic drink. And, like the martini, there are many recipes for the mojito that have strayed far from its original form. We say, bring back the classic! And here is the mix to do so…
- Glassware: Collins Glass
- 1.5 oz. Probitas White Blended Rum
- .75 oz. Lime Juice
- .75 oz. Simple Syrup
- 3 oz. Club Soda
- Garnish: Mint Sprig
Combine ingredients, except for club soda, in a cocktail saker, and shake with ice (a 13 count or until the shaker starts to frost). Strain over ice into a Collins glass, top with club soda and stir to integrate. Garnish, serve and enjoy!
Very few cocktails can match the fame of a Mojito. Like many classic cocktails, it is one often ordered, but not always delivered upon in form. The legend of the beverage itself, stretches as far back to Sir Frances Drake and his Caribbean exploits. The Mojito remains a core pillar of the foundation of learning to make drinks. The Mojito is a member of the “sour” family. Take a base spirit, add a sweetener and citrus and there is a sour. What elevates the Mojito from a traditional sour is the addition of two ingredients, carbonation and mint. Carbonation adds a brightness and lightness to the drink, and mint adds pure cooling refreshment in the way that makes you want to order drink after drink.
