The Havana Mojito as shared with my Los Angeles bookclub by Rosa Lowinger. It’s not a Havana Mojito without the Angostura!
Havana Mojito Ingredients
Lime cut into wedges – 1/2 or whole lime depending on taste
Soda or Sparkling water
2 Tablespoons Sugar
A dozen fresh mint leaves
Angostura – a couple of drops
Muddle (Smush and squish) the mint and 1/2 of the lime in a glass. Add the rest of the lime and the sugar and muddle some more. Finally, add ice, rum, sparkling water and the Angostura. Give it a stir and enjoy!
