Havana, Cuba, is known as the birthplace of the mojito where it started as a remedy for illnesses. While no longer needed as medicine, the mojito has evolved and stayed as a refreshing drink we’ve all come to know. Theories exist that maybe Sir Francis Drake, the English explorer and privateer, created a version of the mojito while out at sea or while at port in Havana back in the 1500′s. Back here in the 21st century though, you can enjoy a mojito made with the freshest ingredients without the sea water splashing around.
