Do you shake a mojito?
You do not need to shake a mojito. In fact, if you shook a mojito, the club soda would lose a lot of its fizz. Simply muddle the mint, sugar, and lime juice, add some ice and club soda to the glass, give it one quick stir, then enjoy!
Is a mojito served with ice?
Our mojito is served with ice. It is definitely best when chilled!
Why do you slap mint?
If you are talking about muddling mint, then we have an answer for you! Mint is muddled to help release the natural oils in the leaves. The oils are where all the flavor lies. When you grind the mint with the rough sugar, those oils come out and your drink becomes delicious.
How do you get the most flavor out of mint?
Muddle it! Breaking up the mint and grinding it with the sugar gets all the flavor out of the leaves.
Why is it called a mojito?
The name “mojito” could have come from a few different sources. Mojadito means “a little wet” in Spanish which could be one origin of the word mojito. A Cuban, lime-based seasoning called mojo may also be the root of the word mojito.
Some say the drink was created by African slaves working in the fields of Cuba. They would make drinks for their owners similar to mojitos. Mojo can also mean “to place a little spell”, so the slaves would mix up these magic concoctions and give them to the plantation owners. No matter the origin of the word, we know it is a drink we adore!
What does mocktail stand for?
Mocktail means “mock cocktail”. It is a cocktail that is made without alcohol.
