History

A real Cuban Mojito is done using Perrier instead of 7UP. I prefer when my Mojito is a little sweeter ;)

Sounds great, I don't have a sweet tooth so will try Fizzy water (agua con gas)!

I left out the sugar (too sweet) and used Sprite and it was excellent. But who has time to let the mix rest for a few hours? hehe

You can also try Perrier instead of 7up.
