The Original Cuban Mojito’s a highball staple that’ll never go out of style. As legend goes, the birth of the Mojito came in the 16th century when the plundering Englishman, Sir Frances Drake, ventured ashore in Cuba looking for a scurvy remedy for him and his crew. They came upon a local mixture of crude rum born from sugar cane, lime juices, and mint.
The Cuba Libre is a highball cocktail with roots buried deep in the island’s heritage. The national drink of Cuba is often generalized with the popular Rum and Coke, but there are a few differences.
