Classic Cocktails- Mojito

It’s week 2 of our classic cocktails.

I am making you guys so many classics that you’re not going to know what to do with it.

Sorry, I’m a bit on the hyper side while typing this. I am making one of my favorite alcohol recipes in the world.

A mojito.

I love mint and there is something about mixing the mint with the rum that really hits your tastebuds right.  

I remember the first time that I made a mojito, I was working for this bar and restaurant in Texas as a bartender. I had no idea what this cocktail was, let alone how to make it.  

That’s why the cell phone was invented I think.

To look up things that you don’t know how to make.

Well, I made it for the customer and tasted it.

I loved it.  I never thought that I would like it.  I was convinced that I wasn’t a rum drinker, at that point in my life, but I loved it.
