“The mojito is so sexy and light that it would be a shame not to adapt the Cuban original to the Mexican model. The typical mojito is made with white rum, but a smooth white tequila works perfectly with the wisp of mint and sweetness. Tequila is a more versatile mixer than one might think, especially in drinks that already lean to the tart and citrusy. A very quick drink to make—and drink.—Deborah Schneider”
