The guys talk the ubiquitous, oft misunderstood, oft mismade but endlessly lovable Mojito! Made using silver rum(or a slightly aged rum), fresh mint sprigs, fresh lime juice, simple syrup (or sugar in the drink) and soda water will be all of your key ingredients. Depending on the style you make, you may need a Hawthorne strainer, a fine strainer, a jigger, a muddler and a Tom Collins glass. Like the drink can be, the history of the Mojito is muddled. We think it originated in Cuba, from Sloppy Joe’s Bar Manual, in the 1930’s or possibly the Libro De Cocktail cocktail guide that came into being in the 1920’s. Cuba being a home for rum, ingredients native to Cuba, mint, lime, sugar. There could be a through line all the way back to Sir Francis Drake, but that could be lore. The guys talk their first mojitos, bastardized versions of the elegant, fun cocktail they make today. All that on more on this episode of Equal Parts: A Bartending Podcast About Cocktails.
