Two Simple Recipes for Making Mojito Cocktails.

Mojito cocktails or mocktails are one of the most popular cocktails in the world. Turns out Cubans have been enjoying mojito from as early as the early 19th Century before they decided to share secret recipe with the rest of the world. And we have all since grown to love them (the mojitos, not Cubans). Perhaps for the fresh ingredients, such as the fresh mint, or watermelon in some cases, used in making mojito cocktails. Whichever your preference, just remember to serve in a Collins glass, nice and cold, close your eyes then refreshingly sip your way through a hot, sunny afternoon.How to make Mojito Cocktails
