Description

HISTORY OF THIS COCKTAIL

As per the name we’ve given the ever famous Mojito Cocktail “Havana” in Cuba, is said to be the birthplace of this delicious concoction.

From the 1500s, up until a 2002 James Bond movie, the Mojito has had an interesting journey from invention to becoming one of the most popular drinks of the new millennium.

As with all cocktail histories, the Mojito’s origin story is often disputed. A restaurant/bar in Cuba claims to be the cocktail’s birthplace, and enjoys the fame associated with it but it has also been claimed that African slaves working in the Cuban sugar cane fields created the drink from a simple sugar cane alcohol. Certainly the name “Mojito” fits this story, stemming from the word “Mojo”, meaning “to place a little spell”.
