Yes, this is not the first time I post the best mojito.
My first article took all details apart and made some suggestions. However now, I really feel, that I am on the right way to the truly best mojito:
We can all agree upon, that better quality and better matching ingredients makes a better mojito.
The first secret is: I found the perfect Mojito rum. No joke. PERFECT.
It is Diplomatico Planas. A Venezuelan rum, which is in the style of Cuban (and Dominican) rums - though better. It is longer aged, has a fuller bodied aroma, without being too dominating or funky (like a Jamaican rum. But the most important part is, that Planas is stronger than its competitors. Healthy 47%.
There is no rum, which is coming close to it. Not Bacardi (the replicas are not bad... still no comparison). No Havana Club. The second choice would be a blend from a high-roof rum (white) and a reasonable good light rum (Matusalem Platino), and maybe a small fraction of aged rum. But even this is not close.
Second: buy a hydroponic system and grow mint. I mean it.
It is very simple: indoor hydroponic mint is clean and it is as fresh as it could be! You are harvesting it when you need it. Alone if you are slightly brushing the mint leaves, they release intoxicating minty aromas. All purchased mint is manhandled. And loses most of its delicate potency.
Third: the ice. Use a Lewis bag and cubed ice. And crack the ice yourself. You end up with the perfect ice.
Not only is it perfectly irregular - but it also gives some drama to your preparation.
Sugar: fine cane sugar - which is not over processed (white organic caster cane sugar it is).
Soda? From the soda siphon. And this is it almost already. There is also technique. But I made an Instagram Reel - so you can watch it (unfortunately I am not smart enough to embed this reel into the html of this blog post. Tough luck).
But this is it already. The very best mojito to date. Forget any posts, which promising you a perfect mojito.
