Traditionally, a mojito is a cocktail that consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint. The Mojito represents the perfect rum cocktail. The cocktail has a relatively low alcohol content (about 10% alcohol by volume). It's a clean, simple cocktail that is nearly as easy to imbibe as it is to make. It's a refreshing cocktail that can be enjoyed any time of the year.
