Tip #3: Master the Muddle

Mastering the Muddling Technique:
To truly elevate your Mojito game, mastering the muddling technique is essential. This artful method involves gently pressing the mint leaves and lime juice together to release their aromatic oils. Be careful not to over-muddle, as it can lead to bitter flavors. Aim for a gentle crush, allowing the ingredients to blend harmoniously.
