Cuba’s Homage

Mojito is a cocktail of Cuban rum that appeared on the island in 1946 under the impulse of the Bodeguita del Medio’s bartender.

However, the origins of Mojito go back further. We must return to the 16th century, the great period of pirates, to find the roots of this drink. At that time, the English pirate, Francis Drake, the first Englishman to navigate the world, known as El Draque, had a landmark in Cuba, in the small island of Isla de Juventud.

The beauty of the island, stimulated the pirate’s creativity to imagine a preparation based on rum, lime and mint.

This drink called Draque quickly became successful and became one of the reference drinks of the island until 1946 when a more refined version, Mojito, took its place as the reference. Mojito is indeed a more refined version of the Draque with the use of rum and sparkling water.
