Cuban Mojito

This is a traditional mojito recipe, very similar to those served in Varadero, Cuba. The muddling and the order of the ingredients helps ensure that all the flavours are well blended. Serve with a straw and a decorative stir stick to keep the different flavours well mixed together. Mint sprigs may be used for a garnish instead of lime wedges.


2 servings


2 teaspoons granulated (white) sugar
1 lime, cut into 4 wedges
4 sprigs fresh mint
1/2 cup white rum
2 cups club soda
2 cups crushed ice
2 wedges lime, as garnish


Place 1 teaspoon of sugar into each of two 12 ounce glasses. Squeeze the juice from a lime wedge into each glass, drop in the wedge, and add 2 sprigs of mint. Use a spoon or muddler to mash the sugar, lime juice, and mint together in the bottom of the glasses. Fill each glass about half full with crushed ice. Pour 1/4 cup rum into each glass. Fill the glasses with club soda, stir, and garnish with additional lime wedges.
