My week-long Cinco de Mayo celebration continues with a refreshing drink (not this morning, after school yesterday). Mojitos! What a fun word to say. What a tasty drink. Although I think they’re originally Cuban… not Mexican… but I’m not a beverage historian.

Mojitos

Mojitos

Ingredients:
Fresh mint, lime, sugar, white rum, sparkling water or club soda, crushed ice

Directions:
Add mint leaves to glass, squeeze lime on top and add a tsp. of sugar. Use a muddler to crush the mint leaves. Fill glass with ice, add rum and top off with sparkling water or club soda. Garnish glass with a spring of mint and a lime wedge.

Other than mojitos or margaritas, what other Mexican beverages do you enjoy?
