Cuban Cocktails: The Mojito

Anticipating the release of Cuba Cooks with a classic Cuban Cocktail: the mojito.  Made all over Cuba and beyond, the cocktail contains just four basic ingredients - rum, lime, mint, sugar.  The bartender who made me this one told me his secret is to strain out the muddled mint and then add a fresh sprig for a fresher and stronger mint flavor (it also keeps the mint from getting stuck in your straw).
