In the late 1500s English pirate Sir Richard Drake, subordinate to Captain Sir Francis Drake, prepared the first version of a drink combining aguardiente (the crude forerunner of rum) mixed
with sugar, lime and mint known as the Draque, Drak or Droc.
In 1862 BACARDI revolutionized the spirits industry when founder Don Facundo Bacardi began producing BACARDI Rum, the world’s first light bodied rum, in Santiago de Cuba. It was around that
time the official recipe for the Draque was altered replacing the aguardiente with rum and thus creating the Mojito.
The BACARDI Classic Cocktail Mojito offers the ultimate in flavor, convenience and true brand heritage dating back to the mid 1800’s when BACARDI rum was first used to make the mojito. For more
