How the Mojito Recipe Was Made

The mojito recipe started in Havana, Cuba. Similar to other citrus-flavored cocktails, the mojito historically helped treat tropical ailments like scurvy.

Some theorize the mojito originated with Sir Francis Drake as “El Draque.” That was a brandy cocktail, but the first-recorded combination of lime, sugarcane and mint.

We have a few different ways to spin a mojito recipe at Tipsy Bartender. You can go with a classic mojito. You can add some berries to it – really, any kind of fruit will do for this combo. Some add cucumber for a fresh, clean feel, others add cantaloupe if they’re looking for that private island experience.

An important step for any mojito recipe is mashing the mix with a muddler. This is meant to help get all the flavor out of the mint leaves, into the drink, as well as help the sugar dissolve.

This sugar, mint and rum will set a foundation for a wide variety of enjoyable drinks for any season. You can learn to make these simple cocktails at home, whether you’re stuck by yourself or gathering with friends or family.

Like all our cocktails, this is where you learn how to make a mojito just the way you like it. Your next cocktail party will be notably better if you can master one of these.
