2000 Best Cocktail, Funky

Mojito, Chez Henri

Crushed mint leaves, a squeeze of fresh lime juice, sugar, and white rum combine for the ideal mojito, a sexy Cuban cocktail. Sip it by itself for a beat-the-heat refreshment, or down it as an accompaniment to the spicy Cuban sandwiches at the bar. Note: Though the bar is always pleasant, nobody works mojo on the mojito like bartender K.C.
