It’s summertime! And what better way to celebrate than with a tasty Tequila Mojito recipe? A mojito is a popular Cuban cocktail made of five simple ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, mint leaves, and club soda. They are usually served in a tall Collins glass filled with ice cubes. The drink is also known as “El Draque” because it is rumored to have been invented by Sir Francis Drake in the 1500s when he had leftover limes on board his ship after plundering the Spanish Main. Whatever its history, this drink is the perfect cocktail for summer. Here’s how you can make your own Tequila Moj
Get your ingredients
1/2 ounce silver tequila 3/4 ounce triple sec 4 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice 1 ounce soda water 2 mint leaves for garnish Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Serve in a tall glass filled with ice cubes. Garnish with mint leaves.
Choose Your Drink
You can make a mojito with any light rum like Bacardi, or a dark rum like Jack Daniels. Choose a white rum like Bacardi, or a dark rum like Jack Daniels. A spiced rum or a Jamaican rum is also delicious. If you choose the mojito recipe, use simple simple simple club soda instead of lime juice. The easiest way to peel a lime is to cut it in half and pull it out the bottom. Why Are Mojitos Simple? The choice of ingredients is relatively simple, but the assembly of the cocktail is relatively difficult. That’s why a bartender has to be an expert of basic cocktail making. Here are the things you need to be concerned about: The volume of ice. There should be enough ice cubes to give the drink enough volume to stay afloat even in the hottest of days.

Add more rum for a stronger drink
One 12-ounce bottle of tequila, such as tequila blanco (which is blanco means “white”), is about 1/2 a standard serving of liquid. If you like your Mojito stronger, try doubling the rum, which will add an extra kick. (Just be sure to use the good stuff, not cheap store brands.) Mix the ingredients in a shaker, then strain into a cocktail glass. Place a lime wedge on top of the drink before drinking. To make a lighter (and less boozy) version of the mojito, just use 1 cup of club soda and 2 ounces of lime juice. This classic cocktail also makes an excellent drink to serve when you’re entertaining outdoors. There are many variations of the recipe that can be made with different ingredients, such as whiskey or rum.
