The summer that I discovered the Mojito, I was instantly smitten. Aside from it being the perfect refreshing drink, I love that it works incredibly well as both a cocktail and a mocktail.

It’s a great drink to serve at a gathering, and we’ve got a recipe that takes out all of the guesswork. So that you can serve a perfect classic Mojito or Mojito mocktail every single time.

What’s There To Love About a Mojito?

I mean, what’s there not to love?!

The combination of the bright mint, tart lime, and bubbly soda water is perfectly refreshing. It’s a great drink for a hot day, or for enjoying with friends.

It’s also a great way to use what you grow yourself if you have a little herb garden or lime tree! I always find it extra satisfying to use our own herbs, fruits, or veggies. There’s something very satisfying about growing your own produce and putting it to good use.

Finally, I love that you can make this drink as labor intensive or as simple as you’d like. You can muddle your mint if you choose, or you can use our secret ingredient to make things a lot more easy and quick (more on that below!).

A Little Mojito History

Did you know that Mojitos can be traced back to Cuba in the 16th century?! There was a drink called El Draque, named for explorer Sir Francis Drake, who visited Havana in his explorations. Back then it was made with a spirit called aguardiente (a precursor to rum), lime, mint, and sugar.

In the early 1900’s, rum replaced the aguardiente and the cocktail became known as the Mojito!

We definitely have Cuba to thank for this delicious cocktail as all of the ingredients are indigenous there — rum, lime, mint, and cane sugar. Another fun fact? It’s said that Ernest Hemmingay used to sip Mojitos frequently at his favorite Havana bar.
