Get it right

It is the most popular cocktail in the world because it is such a simple recipe. It is also everlasting given its availability. The mint leaves in your mojito can make or break your mojito if its freshness is compromised. Crushed ice is used widely in the drink. Ideally, a cube of ice should be used to prevent the ice from diluting too fast and watering it down. On a very hot day, you can combine the cube of ice with crushed ice.
