About this drink

Cuba is the undisputed birthplace of the Mojito, although the exact origin of this classic cocktail is the subject of debate. One story traces the Mojito to the 16th century when the cocktail was known as “El Draque,” in honor (or dishonor) of the English pirate and slave-trader Francis Drake.
