The times I've had mojito's I thought they were a great drink, and the one I had at Casa Fuente was incredible. So when I noticed mint leaves at the grocery the other day, I decided I'd give it a shot.
I need better rum, and I didn't get it perfect BUT... still pretty good.
I guess I'll have...
I love mojitos. While these aren't exactly "real" mojitos, they're quick, easy, and yummy:
1 can "real fruit juice" soda - Hansen's is one brand, there are others. You choose the flavor
2 sprigs fresh mint
Rum - enough to fill the tumblers!
Ice - to taste
Place a sprig of mint in each of...
Miami Cigar and Mojito Bar Event. A little slice of Havana right here in the Valley. You haven't lived until you've had one of Dave's Mojitos.
I'm not associated with the business, but I do like to use their lounge.
Leaning House Cigars
1. powdered sugar rather than granulated...dissolves more easily
2. pour rum and stir before putting in ice. Again, this allows the sugar to mix and dissolve
3. Use 2 key limes instead of a normal lime
I make my own simple syrup 2 cups sugar 2 cups water heated until the sugar is disolved the cool to room temp. Will make a few pitchers of mojoitos. (increase for more just keep the 1-1 ratio)
In a large glass or metal shaker add about 10-20 mint leaves, and 2 limes cut into cubes (1/2...
Its 3 in the morning and I cannot sleep, so a little party planning is in order. The other night a Friend and I were at Casa Fuente's having tangerine mojito's and cigars, my how I love mojito's. So I am asking my fine BOTL to help with the planning. And yes you can come too, when I set the...
I know the mojito is a summer drink but I picked up a bunch of limes and mint in preparation for new years eve...I haven't had one in a while.
I couldn't wait and so made one, then two, then three, then four, tonight. Yum!
Prior to tonight I mostly was using the mix that you just put in with...
This stuff is great - mint-mojito. I don't chew much gum (except after a cigar, maybe) and I have never thought much of sugarless gum cause the flavor doesn't last. My kid handed me a stick the other day and it set me back on my heels.
Like the cocktail, the gum is quite the clean, pleasing...
I read a few posts in this forum about mojitos and the latest cigar afficianado had an article about rum so I decided to try a mojito with my Father's day dinner tonight.
I have to say: YUM!
It was quite tasty, very minty and refreshing. I would have prefered maybe just a touch more of an...
The New Moo Lodge over in the coffee forum is featuring free Eggs Benedict and smoked salmon breakfasts all weekend. You must be present to attend. The breakfast bar really is stunning - hope you can come by.
AND! Saturday is Mojito Day at the Lodge. The mojito is the featured weekend...
Wow. What a spectacular cigar. My first ever Mohito, and certain not to be my last (need more...many more!). Dark, bitter-sweet chocolate-like flavors and firm draw with a snowy white ash. Similar in profile to the cabinetta, but perhaps a bit more intense. I found the Cabnietta to be a bit...
Been reading the mojitos thread and thought that i would share my method for quick and easy mojitos (im the only one who drinks them usually and this allows me a mojito anytime)
Make yourself some sugar syrup (dissolve as much sugar as you can in hot water and leave to go cold, some sugar will...
Made my first Bacardi MOJITO last night...and let me tell you - THIS IS A DANGEROUS DRINK...as in, I could keep drinking and drinking and drinking, until OOPS...I'M MESSED UP!!!
Anyone have any mojito variation recipes? Post em here!
Okay, this just came to me out of the blue.
The first ten to post a recipe will be the contestants. The recipies will be judged by anyone in the jungle who cares to try said recipies and submit their opinion. Let's say the first twenty-five who mix and try them.
Judging will be based on...
