  • I am depressed! There is the "Ultimate Cocktail Challenge" and the cocktails are far from being on par with modern mixology!

    Shaken Mojito??? A Mai Tai with ice cubes [no crushed ice mentioned]? Or a Daiquiri which is far too sweet?

    At least it became a bit better than the last one [when bitter orange liqueurs were tested] - well marginal better...

    The ingredients in your mojito recipe are correct, but there is no need to strain the mixture if you're serving over ice. If you’d like a demonstration of the proper way to make a mojito, stop by Havana Central in New York City for happy hour. The otherwise slender bartenders with Popeye forearms will be happy to muddle one up for you.
