A variation of the original Mojito from the 1935 Bar La Florida recipe book, this recipe calls for gin instead of rum. That is the only difference. The book also uses lemon juice in the original one, which I swapped for lime juice instead. My description for the Mojito Criollo #1 provides my justification and reason for using lime instead of lemon. And since I used lime in the first one, I will keep with lemon in this one for varieties sake. Both the #1 and #2 are excellent drinks, and the use of gin makes this taste like a more refreshing highball version of a Southside.
