4 Things You Didn’t Know About The Mojito

Summer’s most popular drink has a rich history. Here’s 4 surprising facts about the mojito.

 

1. The Mojito is one of the oldest known mixed drinks.

While its origins are relatively unknown, the mixture of rum, lime, and mint has been around since the 1500s.

 

2. Pirates were some of the first Mojito drinkers.

They’d make the mixture (with an earlier version of rum known as aguardiente) to treat scurvy and dysentery.

 

3. Mojito’s are James Bond-cool.

You can thank the resurgence of Mojito ‘moxie’ on the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day, when James enjoys a Mojito on the beach. It caused a reported spike in Mojito sales and kickstarted the Mojito madness we enjoy today.

 

4. The modern day Mojito is proudly from Cuba.

Cubans are super proud of the roots of the modern-day Mojito. If you go there, you’ll be able to enjoy one in almost every tourist location.
