Somewhere in between sipping on virgin mojitos to gulping down glasses of tasty alcoholic mojitos, we all grew up. Ask anyone about the first ever cocktail they had and the unanimous answer (in 9 cases out of 10, we bet) would be a mojito. Come on! True, right?

Not only has it been loved globally since the 1900s, mojitos still rule the bar orders. Show us one person who's never had it, just try! And teetotallers don't count.

From being a modest blend of firewater, lime and mint leaves to a new-fangled cocktail made with white rum, the energetic infusion pairs well with every palate and occasion. It's also one of the few drinks that infuses rum well with other ingredients.
