Depending on who you believe, the mojito either came from the Spanish word ‘mojar’, which means to wet, or the African word ‘mojo’, which means to cast a spell.
- 2 parts BACARDÍ Superior Rum
- 4 lime wedges
- 12 fresh mint leaves
- 2 heaped tsp Caster sugar
- 1 part soda water/club soda
- Sprig of fresh mint
Method: Take the lime wedges and squeeze them in the glass. Gently press together the limes and sugar. Bruise the mint leaves by clapping them between your palms, rub them on the rim of the glass and drop them in. Next, half fill the glass with crushed ice, add the BACARDÍ Superior rum and stir. Top with crushed ice, a splash of soda and a sprig of mint.
