Mojo de Ginebra


Love a Mojito? Try this gin-based Cuban classic.

Does this recipe look familiar? This Cuban classic also circulated as the Mojito Criollo #2, swapping gin for the Mojito’s more familiar rum base. Old Tom gin was called for in the 1929 recipe, but it also works great with most London dry or contemporary gins.


  • 2 oz. gin
  • ¾ oz. fresh lime juice
  • ½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 6-8 leaves fresh mint
  • Chilled club soda
  • Tools:barspoon, muddler
  • Glass:Collins
  • Garnish:lime wedge, mint bouquet


Gently muddle the mint with the simple syrup in a Collins glass, then add the gin, lime juice, and bitters, stirring to combine. Fill the glass with crushed ice and top with club soda, stirring gently and adding more ice if needed. Garnish.
