Or should I say the ubiquitous Mojito! And it just so happens that mojitos are my favorite cocktail! I was in luck as every bar and restaurant had their own version, always, always, made with fresh lime and fresh mint. If I had a rating scale – it would be 5 mint leaves is the best — down to 0 mint leaves being the worst. Note – I found none under a 3 mint leave rating!
Rum is also featured in THE Daiquiri. . .supposedly created at Floridita, a restaurant-bar in Havana. La Cuna del Daiquiri!
