Mojitos are one of my favorite cocktails. So simple to make, but I have had some mojitos that I have sent back in very well known bars. It shouldn't be a mystery to make a really good cocktail, but sometimes it is really difficult to make a good cocktail. If you have never had a mojito this is a refreshing drink made with fresh mint, rum, lime, and ice. Looking for a way to cool off, a mojito is the way you want to go.
In reality this is one of the easier cocktails to drink. Living in Houston, the summers are brutal, and you want a cocktail that is going to be refreshing, and light. Mojitos are the way to go. This is a cocktail that I often order, it doesn't take a particularly skilled bar tender to make this cocktail, but it does take someone with a few fresh ingredients. You can make an outstanding Mojito at home, without having graduated from Coyote Ugly school of bar-tending.
This recipe is from my friend, Lee. He and his wife are known for their wonderful pool parties, where Lee dutifully tends bar. This year's pool party brought us mojitos, avocado margaritas, and a few other tasty drinks. There have been bar tending classes, and much sampling across the US for the perfect mojito, and I think you have it here.
