Notes

Did you know? The mojito didn’t start out with rum, but rather as a medicinal drink. in the 1500s, Sir Francis Drake landed in Havana to ransack the city for gold. His plan to do so failed, but in the process, the Mojito was born. Drake’s crew was suffering from scurvy and dysentery. He sent a small party ashore to search for remedies. They returned with a recipe from the local South American Indians for a tonic made from mint leaves with juice from sugar cane and limes. The legendary cocktail names “El Draque” using similar ingredients and rum became popular in Cuba after that time, and was supposedly named after Drake himself.
