July 4th, 2011 – Mojito Mint

July 4th, 2011   Mojito Mint, 20110704 NIKON D40 1187 920x705

I love mojitos. I love the taste of rum, mint and lime blended together over crushed ice. In the past, my wife and I have experimented with making them at home. We ha??ve never made it taste quite right and recently I found out one reason. We had made our mojitos with spearmint. That’??s the most common type of mint found at the farmers market. Recently a friend of mine who travels to Puerto Rico quite often told me that I needed a special mojito mint. I thought she was kidding but out of curiosity I poked around on Google. Well … she was right. I found a place in Florida that shipped me the exact mint used in Cuba for making authentic mojitos. I am going to enjoy my summer!
