Mojito – The Cuban rum cocktail
The mojito recipe originates from Cuba. There are multiple legends surrounding its creation. One story says, that a British pirate named Francis Drake cured his stomach aches with a mix of limes, sugar, sugar cane schnapps and mint already in the 16. century. This forerunner of the mojito was later combined with rum, when the production of rum became more common in the Caribbean. But the summery cocktail, that is so popular today, only became this well known centuries later, through its famous fan Ernest Hemingway. His remark “my mojito en La Bodeguita, my daiquiri in El Floridita” still hangs in La Bodeguita in Havana on the wall.
