Mojito’s several hundred years of history all started in Cuba, making it one of the cultural icons of the country.
According to Meeroona, while there are a few theories when it comes to mojito’s true origins, it doesn’t matter if your favorite drink was an invention of the African slaves who worked on sugar cane fields in Cuba during the late 1800s, the US Marine Corps, or was a mere descendant of El Draque.
What matters is that mojito rose to popularity in 1930 in Havana, the stunning capital of Cuba before it became a global trend thanks to hotshot celebrities like Errol Flynn, Brigitte Bardot, and even Ernest Hemingway himself.
With his fervent passion for Cuba’s charm and mellowness where he used to work as a journalist, Hemingway learned about mojito and install fell head over heels in love with its one of a kind taste. This is what made the drink reach the spot where it is right now, right on top of the list of the most famous cocktails of the world.
