    This had wonderful flavor, but it is very potent! There are 5 cups of alcohol in a drink that serves 4-6; it will knock you off your feet if you don't handle with care! I really liked the mixture of flavor, but my husband found them a bit too tart.

    I must say there is nothing like an authentic Cuban Mojito. There really is no need to make a simple syrup because when you muddle the sugar, mint and lime it dissolves and if there are some glandulars of sugar in that last sip of the cooling Cuban drink it`s a welcome surprise for me. This is one drink that does not need any boost of additional booze! And I found the champagne gave it a dry taste. This wasn`t for me but I`m sure other would love it! I`m just a real lover of the real thing! I guess I am prejudice so I will not rate it in all fairness.
