How to handle a muddler..... Cuban Style.
Here is the way you can tell if a bartender knows his stuff. Making a Mojito that is!
1- He knows his way around a muddler, and is very good at it!
2- He knows size does matter and you need at least 2 inches in the bottom (of mint!). OMG, I truly didn't mean IN THE BOTTOM! haha (until i wrote it and rearranged the wording...)
3- No fake stuff here, only pure sugar cane or good old fashioned simple syrup.
4- Can't forget the lime. At least have a lime.
"You put the lime in the coconut and shake it all up"
and yes, there is no coconut in the mohito. Just a random thought!
5-Crushed Ice, perferably by hand. It just makes a better presentation.
6- Light Cuban Rum (if you can get it and we all love Cuban men, I mean Cuban rum.)
6-Top it off with Soda and you are a VERY satified customer.
I am obsessed as you can see since part of this post was in another post! I just added to it! muah.
