Mojito

The Captain’s favourite whilst sipping under a palm tree, this invigorating cocktail with white rum hails from the pristine waters of the Caribbean. Known as Cuba’s most famous drink, the Mojito’s exact birthplace is thought to be the colourful streets of Havana. Once said to be used as a cure for pesky scurvy, it’s now a favourite of thirsty buccaneers across the high seas.

Like all good Mojitos, ours consists of five ingredients that muddle together to create a taste that’s like the essence of the Caribbean in your tankard.

While our classic Mojito recipe uses white rum, you can really let the Captain’s spirit loose with our Captain’s Spice Mojito that uses a drop of Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold instead.
