The Perfect Mojito

Now that the snow is finally behind us, we can start to look forward to warm spring weather. Along with the sun, we can start sipping on refreshing cocktails like the classic mojito.

With flavours of lime and mint, there’s nothing more refreshing than a cold mojito on a hot day. Here’s how to prepare the perfect one courtesy of Esquire.
