Cuban Mojito Recipe
The origin of the mojito dates back to the end of the 16th century when it was prepared with a low-quality mixture of brandy, sugar, lemon and mint. A drink that helped to warm up and prevent scurvy. Mojito was also used in pirate times to combat stomach ailments, prevent cholera and alleviate excessive heat in the West Indies.
After 1860, the refined production of rum replaced brandy, giving rise to the recipe we know today.
