Where Did the Mojito Originate?
The origin of the mojito can be found in Cuba. It is so beloved that it has become the country’s national drink! This classic cocktail is also the drink of choice in the hospitality and nightlife sectors of this tropical island. The mojito started off with a different purpose – it was initially created as a medicinal drink to help alleviate diseases. The original recipe included moonshine, which is a type of homemade whiskey. Over time, the whisky was replaced with rum, which is produced on a large scale in Cuba and is plentiful. Mojitos can be paired with light salty foods like tacos, seafood, nachos, and salsa.
