The classic mojito is a Cuban delight is made with rum, sugar, mint and lime, poured over ice in a tall glass. The combination of fresh flavors and effervescence makes the mojito a summer favorite.
The classic mojito consists of five key ingredients:
- White Rum
- Cane Sugar Juice (Some people opt for simple syrup instead)
- Lime Juice
- Club Soda
- Mint Spring
In the spirit of Exotico, we’re offering a twist on this iconic drink, especially during #ReposadoSeason.
For our Exojito, we simply swap rum for tequila and the lime for a lemon. Our aged, 100% Blue Agave Reposado Tequila adds a more complex flavor profile, making it even more appropriate for changing weather in the fall.
