Mojitos contain all of the flavor profiles that I absolutely adore: the cooling effects of fresh mint, the sweet aftertaste from its teaspoons of sugar, and not to mention its bubbly sensation from the soda water. Whenever I take trips down south, mojitos are definitely my go-to drink. I remember my first mojito experience: it was during one of my trips to Varadero, Cuba and I was eighteen years old. At the time, it was revolutionary because my palette was dancing with satisfaction at every sip (at the time, I was more accustomed to college parties with bad beer and had not yet developed my appreciation for other drinks like wine and cocktails).
Over the holidays, I was ecstatic when I received a Bar Gift Set from Danesco. The quality of the glass in which the tumbler is made of is quite impressive – thick, shiny, and the perfect size for serving my favorite mixed drinks. I also adore the ‘ice shapers’ they come with: stick the contraption in the freezer and you can serve a perfectly rounded ice ball in your cocktail. The recipe book features great mixes and so I decided to whip up their take on a classic mojito (for the obvious reasons).
The Bar Gift Set is ideal as a housewarming present or, better yet, as a really fun (and practical – because you can never say no to more kitchen and entertainment items!) gift for Valentine’s Day. What do you think?
