Mojito This is one summer treat that should be enjoyed year round. Made famous by author, Ernest Hemingway, the drink may have its roots in an earlier drink created by a pirate Sir Richard Drake in the 1500s. His drink, called “El Draque,” was a combination of lime, sugar, mint, and aguardiente (an early version of rum). We all agree here, this recipe makes an unforgettable soap as well! The lime essential oil has antiseptic, antiviral, astringent, and bactericidal properties, and smells divine when paired with spearmint.
