Mojito in the sand of the beach

Flavor is the biggest factor in this week’s Thirsty Thursday cocktail. ‘What flavor mojito will you drink?’ will hopefully be the hardest question you have to answer this weekend. The classic mint beverage has always been a fan favorite. It is said that the mojito came from Cuba. Back when the Cuban farmers had late nights in the field and a bottle of extremely potent rum. They had to use whatever they could find to make the rum go down smooth. The chosen ingredients were lime, sugar-cane juice, and a handful of mint. It was the prohibition that brought the mojito to the capital city of Cuba, as well as the ice and a tall glass. You won’t need many ingredients to create these tasty mojitos. Just choose your fruity flavor and you’re ready to go! Keep up the good work. You’re almost at the weekend and will be sipping your mojito soon!
