There goes the mint crop! :o
A friend tried one over spring break, and declared it her summer drink!!

I have yet to try it, but always think of you when I see or hear reference to it! (I'm hoping to indulge in my 1st on Saturday.)
I need to open a MOJITO MAMA'S place....and try to insure that everyone's FIRST is NOT their last!!

De-yummy! The formula has to be just right or it's a genuine disaster. Too much sugar and you're comatose. Too much lime and you're puckering. Too much mint and you're reaching for the dental floss. Too much club soda and you're gagging. It's ugly, really, unless you are lucky enough to have someone with a steady hand and a lot of experience!!!

I can't believe I just typed that.

I went to a Cuban restaurant and asked the bartender for a margarita, "mojito?" he replied. I said, no - a margarita. He again replied "mojito?". I got the impression that he was not going to let me get away with a margarita. He then proceeded to make an awesome mojito. Four mojitos later (including a mango mojito) I was hooked!

I agree they need to be made perfectly. Anyone have the perfect recipe?

It's been gaining in popularity for sometime....I guess if you like mint they are okay.

They are too sweet and too minty for me.

I also share in Angel Penny and Terri's opinions. And it's definitely mo-hee-toe.

Thank you! :)
Mojito (pronounced mo-HEE-toe) is a traditional Cuban cocktail which became quite popular in the United States during the late 1890s.
