Do you mix a mojito?

Mix your mojito perfectly by using a shaker. Add the ingredients to the shaker and then shake it vigorously for about a minute. You should not go too crazy with the mint as it can cause the drink to be too strong.

 

Which rum is best to make mojitos with?

You can make mojitos with white, light or even silver rum that you can find in your local supermarket.

 

Is it possible to make a mojito with no mint?

You can substitute mint for other fresh herbs if you don’t like mint. For a stronger flavour, try rosemary or basil. Thyme will transform your mojito.
