What’s in a Mojito that makes this cocktail such a global hit? Originating in Havana, the Mojito is Cuba’s most popular contribution to the global bar scene. More labour intensive than most cocktails, it is often blamed for “muddler’s elbow” (mixology’s equivalent to the “tennis elbow”, which is basically aching joints due to muddling – the process of crushing fruit, ice and garnishes like mint leaves in cocktails).
The lime and mint create the perfect counterbalance to the rum, resulting in what many consider to be the ideal tropical cocktail. For this reason, copious quantities of Mojitos are consumed poolside, when summer hits most tropical and warmer regions, including our very own sunny South African shores.
