RECIPES, TIPS, & A BIT MORE

Getting Equipped

RUM

Clear/ silver & dark rum

For an original Cuban mojito, we suggest a premium quality silver rum. For those of you who cannot live without ron anejo or just want to experiment, don't feel shy to mix it up a little with dark rum for a different, yet just as tasty mojito.

Dark spiced rum

If you're scared of dark rums, don't be! One rum that'll have you wishing for more is the Kraken spiced rum. See the Geckrak recipe below for cocktail ideas. This recipe will have you leave you wanting more spiced rum in your life.

Other spirits

Do you prefer vodka over rum? If so, just replace rum with your favorite vodka in our recipes!

BAR TOOLS

If you don't already have one, we recommend that you purchase a jigger to measure portion sizes. Measuring spoons will also do if you don't have a jigger. Remember, precision can go a long way in making great cocktails versus just decent ones.


Some will insist that mojitos should only be drunk in tall and slim highball glasses. But as much we love the tall and slim glasses, we also think other cocktail glasses are just as much fun. Try out stem-less martini glasses or other shorter options that look just as elegant!
