Cuban Mojito Recipe

December 9, 2016 Back to Picks >

The original authentic recipe from Havana Cuba

  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • Juice from 1 lime (2 ounces)
  • 4 mint leaves
  • 1 sprig of mint
  • Havana Club white Rum (2 ounces)
  • 2 ounces club soda

Place the mint leaves into a long mojito glass (often called a “collins” glass) and squeeze the juice from a cut lime over it. You’ll want about two ounces of lime juice, so it may not require all of the juice from a single lime. Add the powdered sugar, then gently smash the mint into the lime juice and sugar with a muddler (a long wooden device). Add ice (preferably crushed) then add the rum and stir, and top off with club soda (you can also stir the club soda in as per your taste). Garnish with a mint sprig.
