Here're some tips to make the different kinds of mojito.
1 Fresh is best: Use fresh mint leaves in your mojito to get that perfect flavour.
2 Get it right: The mint should be just bruised in a muddler and not shredded. Use the back of a spoon if you don’t have a muddler. And remember, don’t put the soda into a shaker as it may blow up.
3 Get experimental: Do not restrict yourself to the tried-and-tested formula. You could try exotic berries, such as blackberries, raspberries and even blueberries. The result will be exciting and your guests will be impressed.
4 Vodka wonder: Flavoured vodkas also make great substitute for rum. Just add a little quantity and do not go overboard as all ingredients should give out their distinct flavour, instead of suppressing the others.
5 Virgin please: You can also alter the mojito for those who don’t want alcohol by just adding soda, berries and mint. A Mojito without alcohol is also called ‘Nojito’!
