A brief history of the Mojito Cocktail...
The Mojito is widely considered to be the most popular cocktail around the world - whether it's served on a tropical beach or a rooftop city bars, this versatile cocktail has a firm place in any situation.
The origins of the Mojito can be traced back to Cuba, and have been linked to Sir Francis Drake - the famous English explorer who this drink was first concocted for...allegedly for medicinal purposes. And this popular drink was also said to be the favourite tipple of Earnest Hemmingway - one of the 20th century's most prolific writers and drinkers. Earnest was said to consume Mojitos regularly during his frequent trips to Cuba, and legend has it that it was this drink that fuelled the creative mind that wrote many of his critically acclaimed novels including Islands in the Stream, A Moveable Feast, and The Old Man and the Sea.
With its roots in Cuba, the Mojito's ingredients are naturally all Cuban based too - sugar cane and limes are grown on the island, and white rum is the native spirit that features in so many Caribbean cocktails, which gives that sweet punch with undertones of molasses.
Creating a Mojito is often described as a labour of love, on account of multi-step process to build this drink. It all starts with the muddling - or gently crushing - of mint, lime and sugar in the glass, to release the intense flavours that are later combined with the sweet white rum and topped with crisp sparkling club soda. Bartenders around the world may not be so endeared with the Mojito however, on account of the time it takes to create and pressure it adds to keep up the pace..especially when there is a queue of patrons wanting their next Mojito!
What ingredients are used for the Mojito Cocktail?
The Mojito is a classic cocktail that is known for its refreshingly zesty flavour profile, and typically has six key ingredients, each bringing a flavoursome kick to this excellent cocktail:
- Bacardi White Rum: This premium rum is the base of the Mojito cocktail and provides a smooth and rich flavor with hints of vanilla and almond.
- Bacardi Spiced Rum: This rum adds a warm and spicy kick to the cocktail, with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.
- Lime: The lime is the star of the show in a Mojito cocktail, providing a super sharp and zesty taste that is both tart and sweet.
- Sugar syrup: This sweetener brings balance to the drink, providing a smooth and consistent sweetness that sits alongside and complements the tartness of the lime.
- Soda water: This ingredient adds a refreshing fizz to the cocktail, which helps to keep this light and easy to drink
- Mint (or mint syrup): No Mojito is complete without mint, and this ingredient ensures that a subtle hint of mint is infused into the cocktail.
Together, these ingredients create a perfectly balanced cocktail that is both sweet and tart, with a refreshing kick of mint and a warm, spicy finish from the Bacardi Spiced Rum.
