Take lime juice, sugar cane juice, mint leaves and mash them gently. Add rum. Stir it all. Then add crashed ice and sparkling soda water. Decorate the glass with mint leaves and lime wedges. This is the original, but seemingly mohito can have some other versions. (Or, was it only decoration?)
Seen in Madrid, Spain, at Mercado de San Miguel. The mohitos are of course a kind of a curiosity, but the place is absolutely recommendable if you want to taste local food.
