Cuba's famed mojito cocktail, once a daily favorite of Ernest Hemingway, is made with rum, sugar, lime juice, and Cuba's unique mojito mint. While recipes call for any available variety of spearmint, the real mojito can be made with only the true mojito mint. This mint was once impossible to get in North America, but thanks to Toronto mojito enthusiast Catherine Nasmith, who visited Cuba in 2006, we now have the authentic plant. It is clearly different from spearmint--it's scent and flavor are agreeably mild and warm, not pungent or overly sweet like spearmint. In a typically Cuban understated way, it's warm embrace lingers until you realize you want more. Like all mints it is easy to grow and will happily provide more than enough fresh sprigs for your mojitos. Salud!
