Over the last couple years it’s become a ubiquitous cocktail.  In fact, if you look around I bet there’s one within eye shot of you right now.  The Mojito, you know it and I’m certain you’ve had a crappy one, everyone has.  But, this week, I’m here to teach you how to do it right.  It’s another one of those deceptively simple cocktails that can go wrong so easily.

We’ll start with Gary Regan’s recipe.  Because, if for no other reason, I’m sure it’s been carefully researched. :D
