Key West’s proximity to Havana makes our mojitos legítimo. Rum, lime juice, cane sugar, mint leaves and a splash of seltzer is a delicious combination and perfect drink to sip during the day. Freshen up with one of the best mojitos on the island, listed in no particular order.
This mojito will cost you, but once you have a sip the price will be easier to digest. It packs a double, triple-punch with rum, and bright green mint leaves and limes are always fresh. Order a mojito from the outside bar before sunset and enjoy the scene of Mallory Square, live music from the salsa band, and a curious crew of roosters looking for crumbs. 410 Wall St., Mallory Square, Key West
Styled after Cuban bars of the 1940s, this little bar at 24 North Hotel in New Town has a medley of mojito options, from mango to Key Lime. Test your tastebuds to see what’s best! Don’t miss $5 mojitos every Monday from 4pm to close. 24 North Hotel, 3820 N. Roosevelt Blvd., Key West
This may be the best mojito in Key West, but there’s a catch: you have to make it. First Legal Rum Distillery is a chef-owned rum distillery that offers free tours and mojito classes, with recipes and techniques imported straight from Cuba. Supplies aren’t free, but it’s well worth it. And, as the saying goes, “teach a man to fish…” 105 Simonton St., Key West
