If you’ve never tried a mojito, a Cuban rum drink that is made with lots of lime, sugar and mint, then you are really missing out. Here in South Florida, with our large Cuban population, it is a standard almost anywhere you go but now is your chance to give a similar drink a try at home. This drink has got a little more going for it in that it is more naturally sweetened with pineapple juice instead of sugar and adds a bit more of the tropics in it with the flavor of coconut.
