Classic Mojito Recipe [video]

Miro Video Player

On a warm day, there is nothing better than a nice classic Mojito. The Mojito is probably one of the most popular drinks in the United States right now. Originally, we created two mojito’s with pre-made kits, but this episode we’re doing it old school: homemade.

The classic homemade Mojito has a great history, great taste and isn’t that incredibly hard to create. You’ll need a Wooden Bar Cocktail Muddler muddler to do the job, but you can get those online pretty easy.

I hope you enjoy the show, I also wanted to take a few moments to thank everyone for the great e-mails, recipe submissions and kind comments. Over the last few weeks I’ve had tons of e-mails from around the world telling me how they love the show, love the recipes and have given some great suggestions on future recipes.

    Yo Derek, I also listened to the podcast and I’ve used the Sprite instead of simple syrup and club soda…I also used the Bacardi Limon instead of the usual Bacardi superior or 10 Cane. My friends are lovin’ it. Thanks for all the vids!!!
