Today, we are sharing Mojito recipe. Mojito is a classic cocktail drink that is originally from Cuba. A refreshing drink that’s increasing its popularity nowadays. With just a little kick of rum, refreshing citrus, and the menthol taste of fresh mint, it is surely a hit with the ladies and gents alike. You will see that restaurants and bars offer this as a lot of people are really into drinking it rather than having beer or other hard liquors and mixes.
I have tried this Mojito recipe way back when I attended a Tupperware event. I was assigned to do the mixing. Though it was my first time, I got complimented by two of the judges which was really heartwarming. It is an easy classic cocktail recipe as you only have to mix all the ingredients and you will have your nice refreshing drink in a jiffy. Just make sure to put the right amount of rum based on what you can handle without jeopardizing the taste. It will surely be your favorite traditional cocktail drink after trying the below.
