Before we Go,
Since this is a cold drink, it will taste best when served on a cold glass. This concept applies to all the cold drinks – not just for Virgin Mojito.
Also, it should be noted that It is pronounced as Mohito – not mojito. The reason for this is because it is a Cuban drink and Cubans speak their version of Spanish also known as Cubano and in Spanish, J is pronounced as Hota.
