"My mojito in the Bodeguita del Medio and my daiquiri in the Floridita." - Ernest Hemingway, a signed quote hung on the wall of La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana, Cuba
Some say this was actually Hemingway signing off on one of his favorite adult beverages, others say it was a publicity stunt by the La Bodeguita del Medio bar and the wall written note was a fake. For our instance, who the hell cares!? Hemingway enjoyed many drinks, and a mojito was surely one of them.
Lightly muddle the mint in the shaker, add rum
and ice, lime juice and sugar. Shake it like a salt shaker,
and serve over crushed ice in a highball glass.
Top off each glass with a splash of club soda
and a lime wedge.
