Tart and sweet at the same time, these delicious mojito cocktails (or "faux-itos" if you don't drink alchol) are sure to please. Great for any warm summer night be it on the shore or in your backyard. A mojito (pronounced mo-HEE-toe), one of Cuba’s oldest cocktails, comes from the African word mojo, which means to place a little spell. Ernest Hemingway fancied them at La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana and is noted for bringing the mojito to his beloved Key West.
