The Miamism Mojito Revolution

Ines Hegedus-Garcia

We have received the Ultimate Compliment here at Miamism - Jeff Turner, bka @respres @jeffturner has not only gotten hooked on Mojitos, but actually tried making them from scratch and shot a video of himself doing it!  This is the same guy that came up with giving...

Mojito alternatives for those of us that are not as "adventurous" and a bit "lazy" and don't feel like making mojitos from scratch


That's what I call MIAMISM LOVE!!  Doesn't get any better than that!

Ines, I have to invite myself to his house now for some Mojitos. :0)

Chris Bohn 14th January, 2009

Ines - This was great. It's hard to teach people on the west coast - but Jeff did very good!! Thanks for sharing it!

Brendan @ 14th January, 2009

Great Little Recipe You Got There! You do need to invest in some tools though. Atleast, a cocktail shaker!

Susie Blackmon 14th January, 2009

I loved respes' video and now I want a mojito ... but have no ingredients. Need to come up with a special mojito for those living in Western North Carolina!

Thesa Chambers 14th January, 2009

I loved it - Mojitos for everyone - having trouble finding fresh mint locally -

monika 14th January, 2009

I still have not had a Mojito... but it sure sounds good.

Ines Hegedus-Garcia 14th January, 2009

Mana - I'm sure Rocky and Jeff would welcome your visit - I would be very jealous though!

Chris - Those West Coasters are pretty sharp .....they learn quick! :)

Brendan - my kids laughed at the lack of tools - we suggested using a hammer handle and even a broomstick......Jeff managed to do just find without them though!

Susie and Thesa - Just plant your own mint and your troubles will be solved.

Monika - WHAT??!!!! and to think we were so close in Orlando and could have at least tasted one! Come on down to Miami and i'll have Rick prepare one specially for you.

Potential Consumer - you keep coming here and leaving derogatory comments - it is your choice NOT to read. We are sorry you do not enjoy our content, but it is who we are.

We have found that mojitos can take the edge off of any situation - give it a may be surprised.

monika 14th January, 2009

Ines...I'll be back down as soon as I can :)

Kappy Mann 14th January, 2009

That clip was awesome -- I learned more from it than any receipe book and am sure I will use it. The Bartender was darling -- what a guy!!

Jay McGillicuddy 14th January, 2009

Jeff is the greatest and I know Monika and I have all the ingredients here in NH so I will have to replay Jeff's video. But, of course, we still would love to come back to So. Florida. ASAP

Ines Hegedus-Garcia 14th January, 2009

I'll be waiting Moni!

Kappy - it helps to have a visual, doesn't it? And the fact that "the Bartender was darlin" doesn't hurt LOL

Jay - you BETTER come down again soon....we can get together and have some REAL MOJITOS! ;)
