The mojito is a rather refreshing drink that can be flavored for all year events. The classic mojito with an extra squeeze of lime is great for the summer, or add a splash of cranberry juice to turn it into an Autumn delight. Since winter is upon us why not give the classic mojito a festive twist by adding some peppermint dust (finely crushed peppermint candies or candy canes). But of course you can’t make any of these without knowing how to shake up a simple mojito.
