  1. I loved this refreshing drink in Mexico and couldn’t get mine to taste as good here in Canada. Turns out I was using a tough-leafed mint that I’d got from a friend’s garden. It had a spearmint flavour. Then I discovered mojito mint, which has a citrus flavour and softer leaves. Now my mojitos are delicious! Thanks for the recipe, BJC. This one and your sangria recipe are summer favourites!
