The Mojito is Cuba’s oldest cocktail. We were lucky enough here at the DUN offices to have a good friend head down to Cuba this year. We told him not to come back unless he brought us a bottle of Havana Club Rum. We must have given him so much good advice on catching tarpon, because he showed up at the offices smelling of tarpon, with a bottle of 7 year old Havana Club rum in hand. Lucky us. After sampling some neat, it was Mojitos all around.
Since our bottle is nearly empty, if you venture to Cuba, be sure to send us a bottle!
Share with us your version of the DUN Mojito and you could win some DUN Shwag!
