S600Li says:

Acc. to IBA no lime but only lime juice.

Manuel West says:

You never wanna muddle the mint that strongly since it releases bitter aromas coming from tannoids. Just gently free the essential oils.
First you add the lime pieces and the sugar. Muddle it fairly strong. Then the leaves which you wanna muddle carefully.

I used to visit this one place where the bartenders literally crushed those lovely poor leaves into tiny pieces. The first time it happened I assumed the young female bartender just made a mistake,so I didn’t say anything. Second time it was a foreigner in his thirties,same barbarism happened and I thought since his finnish wasn’t good that maybe they’d had a misunderstanding. But when the older regular bartender did the same I thought “these guys must have been told by the clients but they don’t care” so I took my money elsewhere for a good mojito.

Nat Wheeldon says:

Insted of white rum use vodka and instead of soda use ginger beer with fresh mint from the garden

B4zing4 says:

Erik D.K says:

Ah c’mon Jamie everything was perfect but the white sugar???? Its brown sugar if we are talking about original of course and it’s totally different and better with brown sugar.

TheQuestionmark427 says:

99.9% of the time, Jamie does things better than I do. However, I tried using whole limes over fresh lime juice, and most people thought my mojitos went down in quality. But usually there’s at least some trick to pick up from any of his videos, and thanks to spanking the mint, I’ve gotten even better reviews on my “best” mojitos than before.
