Mojito de La Bodeguita

Mojito de La Bodeguita

Check out this mojito instruction from La Bodeguita del Medio.  Hey, if it was good enough for Hemingway, it’s good enough for us.  Enjoy!

During Ernest Hemingway’s years living in Cuba he famously proclaimed “My mojito in La Bodeguita, my daiquiri in El Floridita.” He had great taste in cocktails and the establishments where they were made.  Havana’s La Bodequita del Medio has been mixing perfect mojitos since 1942 and has become one of the busiest bars in the city.  The cocktail recipe and mixing process are simple, but it’s impossible to recreate this Cuban classic with the style and ease of the bartenders at La Bodeguita.  Watch and learrn.
