This is one of the most consumed drinks by tourism in Cuba, and obvious by the Cubans, a rich cocktail prepared with rum, and a lot of Cuban flavor I hope you enjoy it


The first thing we are going to do is look for a good good Ron, strong if it is the Habana Club brand, much better, preferably a 3 year old. But it can also be worth another white rum of good quality.
It is necessary to look for mint leaves luckily now we find them in any supermarket in the refrigerated section. There is no mojito without mint. The lime is also very important, and can not be substituted for lemon since it would completely change the flavor. Water with gas or soda and sugar are the last ingredients that we will need.
And here with the recipe
Ingredients for the Cuban mojito: After looking for the good Ron, then we are looking for the mint twigs, luckily in Cuba they are in the portals, either in avandonados places, because it is a wild plant, but I think that in your country you can find it in any market. Are needed
1. 2 sprigs of mint or peppermint,
the second is the zucar, in Cuba the brown sugar is used a lot, really, it is advisable to do this with white sugar, it is softer
2. teaspoons of sugar (to consumer taste, but only two are recommended)
3. The juice of 1 lime
4. 45 ml (more or less) of white Ron
5. A bit of crushed or crushed ice
6. Soda or sparkling water to fill 2/3 of the glass


Preparation of this classic cocktail.
Cut the limes in half. We are going to use the juice of one lime per drink. We squeeze the limes in a glass.
We add 2 teaspoons of sugar and mix well.
Add the 2 sprigs of mint in the glass, whole, it has to be with stem and everything and gently squeeze the branches with a spoon, enough to release the essential oils of the mint. Be careful not to break the leaves.
insert the crushed ice into the glass halfway up or down.
We add the soda to fill about 2/3 of the glass.
It's time to pour the rum. We start with the amount marked and we try and increase depending on how strong we like the mojito.
Mix everything well and decorate with mint leaves. It can be taken with a straw if you like.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we Cubans do, delicious cocktail for the delights of your palate
