The Mojito is a cocktail that has its roots in Cuba, dating back to the 16th century. The traditional recipe for a Mojito includes white rum, sugar, lime juice, mint leaves, and soda water. The drink is typically served over ice in a highball glass and garnished with a lime wedge and mint leaves. The origins of the drink can be traced back to the Taíno people, the indigenous people of Cuba, who would mix sugarcane juice with mint leaves and lime juice. The drink then evolved with the introduction of rum by the Spanish colonizers. The Mojito was first mentioned in literature by Ernest Hemingway in his novel "Islands in the Stream", he is known for being a frequent drinker of Mojitos in Havana. The Mojito became popular in the United States and Europe in the early 21st century, it is considered a summertime drink due to its refreshing and minty taste, and it's a popular choice among those who enjoy rum-based cocktails. The Mojito is considered a classic cocktail and is enjoyed around the world.
