The History of Mojitos:
Havana, Cuba is the birthplace of the mojito cocktail. Early versions of the mojito are believed to have surfaced in the 1500’s. A classic mojito contains 5 ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, club soda and fresh mint.
It’s tough to pinpoint the exact origin of how the mojito came to be. One belief is that South American Indians concocted this drink for medicinal purposes to help with tropical illnesses. Others say that the mojito was invented by Sir Frances Drake. And another theory is that it was a drink that was concocted by African slaves who worked in the Cuban sugar cane fields.
The popularity of the mojito began soaring in the 1930’s in Havana, Cuba. And word of this delicious cocktail spread to the U.S. and other parts of the world.
