Big Apple Mojito

Since about 2000, there has been a Big Apple Martini (Big Apple-tini).  In 2005, Bacardi launched its Bacardi Big Apple rum. A “Big Apple Mojito” recipe soon followed.

Wikipedia: Mojito
Mojito (pronounced IPA: /məˈhiːtoʊ/ (English) IPA: [moˈxito] (Spanish)) is a traditional Cuban cocktail which became popular in the United States during the late 1980s, and has recently seen a resurgence in popularity.

A mojito is traditionally made of five ingredients: rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane juice), lime, carbonated water and mint. Its combination of sweetness and refreshing citrus and spearmint flavors are intended to mask the potent kick of the rum, and have made this clear cocktail a popular summer drink. Many hotels in Havana also add Angostura bitters to cut the sweetness of the mojito; while a popular variation, it is not the original version created in La Bodeguita del Medio.

To make a Mojito, juice from a lime is added to sugar and mint leaves in a tall glass. The mixture is then gently mashed repeatedly with a muddler. Crushed ice is then added, followed by rum and topped off with club soda.
