Mojito is a traditional Cuban cocktail drink which became quite popular in the United States during the late 1890s.

The word "mojo" means -mixture- and that is exactly what this cocktail is. Today the Mojito cocktail occupies a special place in Cuba. It's considered the National drink of Cuba.


6 fresh Strawberries
2 Mint sprigs
3 wedges Lime
1 oz. Creme de Fraise des Bois (Cartron)
2 oz. Rum
1 splash Soda water
How To Make It:

Muddle strawberries, mint, lime and Creme de Fraise des Boise hard in a shaker tin. Add rum and fill shaker with ice. Shake well. Double strain (through sieve) into Collins Glass filled with cracked ice. Top with a splash of soda water.

I've never had a strawberry mojito...but I'm not a fan of the regular ones. Perhaps I'll whip up some hurricanes or midori sours instead. icon_wink.gif

Where's my cabana boy? Don't these evil cesspools have cabana boys??? icon_lol.gif

Okay, here I am, up in the middle of the night because I can't sleep. The supplies sound great except that I'll go back to margaritas or have a hurricane as I don't care for mint nor do I like Madori. Guess I shouldn't be so picky while I'm floating in this cesspool.

Have the grill going and thought a nice big salad and sliced home-grown tomatoes and some fresh corn on the cob would be great also.

Redpanda, beings you were smart enough to remember the cake, we're going to let you bring it...........

I'm mixing up a few fresh raspberry Mojios as well - oh, and SANGRIA!! Gotta have some sangria!

Hmmmm - got quite a craving for fruit today, don't I?

Just think of all the good vitamins in that fruit though. Can I please have some of the raspberries for my margarita?

Perhaps we could get one of these guys to entertain around the pool. From the sounds of the menu and drinks, I think we need Jimmy Buffet.

It was called a Voodoo Bucket and it was made with Cruzan Rum, it tasted like fruit punch.

Oh and I have had the chance to see Garth before he stopped touring, you would have loved him, definitely one of the best shows I have ever seen.

Edited: I found the recipe!

1 part Cruzan Pineapple Rum
1 part Cruzan Orange Rum
1 part Cruzan Banana Rum
1 part Cruzan Coconut Rum
Cranberry juice
Orange juice
Pineapple juice
Shake it
Top off with 1 part Cruzan Estate Dark Rum

You can watch a video of them making it on www.cruzanrum.com

Oh I know he has until the last daughter is 21 which she is ONLY 11 right now... But as long as he keeps putting out Music I will be happy.. But I understand too I got all of his CDs and will get the new one when it comes out in a few months... He has never come to Bakersfield the closest he has come is Fresno which is about 1 hr from me and the tickets were gone in 15 mins... Sold OUT.. I did not have a chance.. LOL .. Some day I hope...

I have never heard of these rums sounds good.. I like fruity drinks.. There is a slurpie (Icy blended) kinda drink at the "Outback Steak House" that is a peach and OMG that thing is so Yummy.... And I am not a peach drinker but this is to die for...

This Voodoo Bucket sounds plum scary!!!!!!! I'd drown in the shallow end of the pool drinking these. icon_lol.gif

I can see me listening to my Jimmy Buffet CDs today. Have all of Garth's too but he is not my favorite. My favorite is George Jones. LadyCake, living in Bakersfield, you should love Merle and Buck.

I was born in Modesto and raised around Sacramento. My dad managed western bands there back in the old days when Bob Wills and his brother Billy Jack were around. My dad called square dances for Bob.

That sounds sooooo good! And thanks for the link - a very interesting site! Makes me crave the waves and the sand and the palm trees...

But I'll be happy to settle for the "cesspool!" At least I know there's lots of good "evil" folks to keep me company here...

Pass the fruit kabobs, please! And hand me a bucket of Voodoo Bucket! (And a bottle of Tylenol, for later...)

Hey Ladycakes! Did your tagline come from a sign at SC?

"I'd Like To Help You Out -------- Which Way Did You Come In???"

icon_biggrin.gif

Jimmy Buffett cranking - can someone pass the sunscreen?

Sorry everyone, I promise rum, then vanish! Darn my family for taking me away from the cesspool fun. Got my floaties though, and ready to jump in. Brought some pretzels and cheese, cause it just feels like a pretzel and cheese day! icon_biggrin.gif

That Voodoo Bucket looks like it belongs here in this cesspool of evil, and slightly drunk people. icon_razz.gif Got another drink to add to the mix. Called Mojo. DH had it at a bar in the Philippines while in the Navy. He wasn't much of a drinker and his friends told him it was a non-alcoholic punch, and he believed them, and drank large amounts, tried to stand up, then fell right back down and realized it was saturated in liquor. We recently found the recipe online. I admit that we have yet to make it, he still doesn't really drink, and though I'm a bit of a lush, I do have children to take care of. icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_razz.gif

1 bottle of beer
5 shots dark rum
5 shots vodka
5 shots gin
5 shots whisky
4 oz pineapple juice
4 oz oj
4 oz sprite
1 shot lime juice
dash of grenadine
1 lemon sliced
--- Makes 1 pitcher

I find it hard to believe he couldn't taste the alcohol, but.... Who wants some?


Oh, and Diane, make sure your fill your margarita with lots of raspberries; I remember reading a few months ago that alcohol actually makes berries HEALTHIER!! Something about upping the antioxidant properties or something. icon_twisted.gif

lionladydi Posted 19 Aug 2007 , 11:43pm
post #25 of 168

Mojo sounds wicked. Have you ever drank a Long Island Iced Tea? You can't taste the liquor in those and they will knock you on your butt. When I owned a bar, I wouldn't serve more than two of them to a person.

Yes, I need extra raspberries. Definitely want my margaritas to be healthy.

Pass the sunscreen................

Ya I know he was not going to tour till the youngest was 21 and she is 11 now... He said that he was going to get some songs out there and a new collection so...

Hey somebody please pass me another glass of that Voodoo stuff so I don't have to get off my floatie. Why doesn't this cesspool have a floating bar???

What were we talking about before? Some sort of Sugar Raft? *hic*

Tramski Posted 20 Aug 2007 , 3:33am

Sugar raft...hehehehehehe

Sorry I giggle when I drink

I might need a lifeguard, preferably tan and hunky with a slight country twang if I could be so picky icon_wink.gif
