The mojito is a cooling effervescent coctail inspired by Havanas's blithe lifestyle in the 1920's. While Hemingway's Cuba is long gone, it's spirit lives on in the sparkling blend of sugar, mint and lime. Adapted from the Seattle Post Intelligencer. Caribbean, Mexican, Southern, and Western.

Was this ever refreshing! I must have made this several times in the last few days. I definetely used alot more raspberies, and I used the blender to crush and blend everything together. Raspberries and mint do go well together.
- 3 -4 fresh raspberries
- 2 lime wedges
- 5 leaves of fresh mint
- 2 -3 teaspoons sugar
- crushed ice
- club soda
Directions See How It's Made
- In a 8-12 oz. glass, with the back of a spoon, mash the berries, lime wedges, mint and sugar until well blended. You can remove the mint, or alternatively, blend the berries, lime juice(from wedges), mint and sugar in a blender.
- Add crushed ice, a splash of lime juice and club soda to fill the glass.
- Shake. Garnish with a lime wedge. Serve and enjoy!
