Hi, this is Milawna and we're at Tap Tap in South Beach Miami showing you how to make mojitos. In this clip I'm going to make a Cachaca Mojito. What is a mojito? Well a mojito was a traditional Cuban drink that was drink on the sugar plantation farms, that were made by the plantation workers themselves. Here at Tap Tap, we're famous for making Haitian mojitos. But I'm going to make you a Cachaca, which is a Brazilian style mojito. Usually the ingredients would include rum, lime, mint, simple syrup and soda water. I'm going to use Cachaca rum which is a Brazilian rum, I'm going to use an ounce and a half. I'm going to muddle fresh mint with raw sugar. It's important to muddle them really good so that you can get the essence of the mint which is in the stems o I'm going to crush the stem and grind the leaves. I'm going to add fresh lime. Add it to my mixture. I'm going to top it off with fresh mint and this is a Cachaca Mojito. Let's give it a try. Not only is it good, but it's beautiful. At Tap Tap we use Haitian rum and Haitian rum is a really good aged rum. It's made the same way that a cognac is made, it's aged in oak barrels. For the Cachaca, we use, we use, Brazilian rum which is pure cane rum with a hint of lime. Thank you for watching, this is Milawna, good-bye.
