By Administrator

Discover the authentic Cuban Mojito. Pick up the skills needed to master this authentic Cuban cocktail – it’s easier than you think! Havana Club is the Cuban Rum brand. The mojito is the Cuban cocktail. So this summer Havana Club is on a mission to get everyone drinking the authentic Cuban mojito. No green tea blending and no passion fruit fusion, just the tastiest mojito using only the freshest ingredients, as enjoyed back in the colourful streets of Havana.

 

STEP 1 

MIX SUGAR AND LIME: Squeeze the juice of half a fresh lime into a glass & add two teaspoons of white sugar. Stir with a spoon or swirl the glass around until the sugar is dissolved

STEP 2

MUDDLE THE MINT: Tap two whole fresh mint sprigs on the back of your hand to release the fragrant aromas. Fold the mint & place in your glass. Gently muddle (press) the mint a few times with the end of a wooden spoon.
