Captain Morgan White Rum, mint, soda water, lime and more mingle together for a refreshingly fresh flavour that’s straight out of the Caribbean.

History

This popular Cuban highball cocktail uses five ingredients (rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water and mint) to create a sweet, citrus, refreshingly herbaceous blend that perfectly complements the rum. The mojito’s fresh ingredients make it a popular summer drink and a great addition to a seasonal menu. The drink originates in Havana, Cuba and according to cocktail folklore, was one of Ernest Hemingway's favourite beverages.
