OriginCuba is the birthplace of the Mojito, although the exact origin of this classic cocktail is the subject of debate.One story traces the Mojito to a similar 16th century drink, the "El Draque", in honor of Sir Francis Drake.It was made initially with tafia/aguardiente, a primitive predecessor of rum, but rum was used as soon as it became widely available to the British (ca. 1650).
