Cuba is the birthplace of the Mojito, although the exact origin of this classic cocktail is the subject of debate.
One story traces the Mojito to a similar 19th century drink known as “El Draque”, after Francis Drake. Made initially with tafia/aguardiente, a primitive predecessor of rum, however rum was used as soon as it became widely available to the British (ca. 1650). There are several theories behind the origin of the name Mojito; one such theory holds that name relates to mojo, a Cuban seasoning made from lime and used to flavour dishes. Another theory is that the name Mojito is simply a derivative of mojadito (Spanish for “a little wet”) or simply the diminutive of mojado (“wet”).Due to the vast influence of immigration from the Canary Islands, the term probably came from the mojo creole marinades adapted in Cuban using citrus vs traditional Isleno types.
The Mojito was a favorite drink of author Ernest Hemingway. Ernest Hemingway made the bar called La Bodeguita del Medio famous as he became one of its regulars and he wrote “My mojito in La Bodeguita, My daiquiri in El Floridita.” This expression in English can still be read on the wall of the bar today, in his handwriting.
