Drinks

MOJITOS

    History of the Mojito Legend has it that Richard Drake , an English pirate who used Cuba as his base island, concocted a beverage similar to the Mojito by mixing aguardiente (an unrefined rum), sugar, lime, and mint. He coined the drink “El Draque” (meaning “the dragon”). The earliest “Mojito” recipes we have found are from 1931 and 1936 editions of a Sloppy Joe’s bar manual. Frequenting the bar were students, musicians, and soon-to-be celebrities, including Ernest Hemingway, Bridgitte Bardot, and Nat King Cole.
