The beauty of the Mojito is its simplicity. The simplicity of the Mojito is often overlooked in an industry that loves to innovate and fussify. This is, however, the wrong approach. The Mojito is our favorite drink because it’s so harmonious and simple: the sweetness of the rum and lime, the cool air of mint and the gravel of sugar. It is tall served with cracked ice and served tall. This drink is great for stargazing, reverie, and lingering. This is the ideal drink for those moments when you don’t have any abiding time.

Even if you don’t suffer from maladaptive daydreaming we urge you to try Mojito. Because it’s delicious. It’s also more robust than your average cocktail, making it ideal for packing in a thermos and taking to the park with a book and blanket. It’s easy to prepare, making it a great option for friends over. A simple mise-en place will make it easy to produce.

There are two ways to make Mojitos

There are actually more ways you can make a Mojito, but these two are the best. The first is simpler and requires less preparation. However, the lime peel can be bitter so it’s worth adding to the mix if you don’t mind. Although it is easier to make, the second one has a uniform composition and requires a little more effort.

Easy recipe

You will need the following ingredients:

  • Cut 3/4 of a lime into wedges
  • 2 cubes brown sugar (white is also fine, but the brown one gives that special exotic taste)
  • A few leaves of mint
  • 2 ounces of white rum. We personally love Havana Club 3 Anos, however, Plantation 3-Star will work. You can use any white rum that you like.

Mix the sugar cubes and lime in a shaker. Avoid overworking the lime peels. However, ensure that the sugar cubes are well crushed. Because mint is delicate, you don’t have to muddle it. The shaking is enough. Add mint and rum to the shaker. Give it a quick shake. You only want the ingredients to be combined, not broken, and the sugar granules dispersed. Place the mixture in a chilled glass.

For a more sophisticated one

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 cube brown sugar
  • 3/4 simple syrup
  • A lot of mint
  • 2 ounces white rum

Mix the sugar cubes and lime juice together first. Then add the mint, rum, and simple syrup. Give it a quick shake before filling with crushed ice. Place in a chilled glass.

If you don’t like the taste of either one of these recipes, add a little bit of any simple syrup you like to make it more sweet. It’s possible to make it perfect. You can make it perfect just the way you are!
