To bring the spirit of the Caribbean to your party, why not serve Mojitos? Sweet but cool, they're sure to get you in touch with your Latin side.

A mojito is packed with mint leaves and served in a long glass.

For the best Mojitos this side of Waterford,

  1. Gently crush the mint leaves in a cool tall glass;
  2. squeeze the lime over the leaves;
  3. sprinkle the sugar into the mix;
  4. fill with ice;
  5. toss in the rum;
  6. trickle in in the club soda; and finally
  7. stir lightly.

Did you know…?

Mojito is pronounced Moh-HEE-toh.

Mojitos should be served in a Collins glass.

Mojitos were a favourite with author Ernest Hemingway. It is said that he enjoyed them at their birthplace, La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana, Cuba.

Enjoy alcohol sensibly.
