The weekend is upon us and so is my Friday’s Vintage cocktail! Each week a I feature a vintage cocktail that I make up, and drink up to celebrate the weekend being upon us! This weekend is rather exciting with The Vintage Collective Markets on THIS SUNDAY, and my Pinup Parade is on again at this event! I have a stall right next to the stage
For this week’s drink I’m featuring the refreshing Mojito, a drink that originates from Havana, Cuba, and has stories that trace back to the 16th century! The drink was popular during the 1930’s, but made a comeback in the 1950’s when it was rediscovered by American author and journalist Ernest Hemmingway at La Bodeguita del Medio.
Mojitos are a truly refreshing cocktail, and as well as being really easy to make, a lot of modern bars and restaurants still serve this delicious drink! The mojito apparently came back into popularity after being featuring in a James Bond Film in 2002. I believe the lime flavours of this drink are more of a summery drink, but its still lovely to sit inside, with the heater on and sip this cocktail! In the coming weeks I hope to feature some winter appropriate cocktails too!
