    This is a true Mojito! A must have recipe-I spend most of my summers in and around the Carribean, this drink always takes me back there!  -  09 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really good mojitos but we went out and bought a muddler the next day because I couldn't get the mint nice and mashed!  -  18 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
