Mojito, pronounced as Moe-hee-toe, is a classic Cuban cocktail traditionally served in a Collins glass. Rum is the primary alcohol used in the drink, and is usually served over ice.
Traditional Mojito
Serves - 2
Ingredients
  • Lime, 16 pieces
  • Mint leaves, with sprigs, 10―15
  • Fine sugar, 2 tablespoons
  • White rum, 4 oz.
  • Lime pieces, garnish
  • Club soda
  • Crushed ice

In a muddle, mash lime pieces with mint leaves along with sugar. Once the lime juice dissolves the sugar, divide the contents in two Collins glasses. Add ice cubes in, and pour white rum and club soda in each glass. Garnish the drinks with some more lime pieces and mint leaves.

In a bowl, add mint leaves, fresh blueberries, sugar, and lime juice together. Take a muddler to crush everything properly so that you get an almost paste-like mixture.
