What's More Refreshing Than a Mojito in the Summer in Tokyo!

In the scorching hot Japanese summers, you can sometimes feel like you're slowly turning into a sloth, as each movement is slower than the next. The blazing sun makes you feel like you're literally melting. Is there anything more refreshing and more summery than a mojito? Below is a recipe for a yuzu mojito, and also different places to enjoy mojitos in Tokyo.

Feel free to follow favy!

Yuzu mojito recipe

Mojito is a traditional Cuban highball and it is usually made with 5 ingredients: mint, lime juice, white rum, sugar, and soda water.

Here's a twist on a classic with a Japanese taste. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus and is commonly found in Japanese cuisine. This citrus is like no other and will add an original twist to a classic mint-lime mojito.

2. Add remaining ingredients, except for the soda
3. Cap and shake vigorously
4. Pour into a long serving glass and add ice
5. Top with tonic soda and garnish with lime and mint

Havana Cafe

About a 4 minute walk from Roppongi station, Havana Cafe is a great place to stop by for happy hour. Although this restaurant is called Havana Cafe, it specializes in Mexican food.
However, faithful to its name, they make delicious mojitos; in fact, some say the best in Tokyo!

Ginza 300 BAR

300 bar has 3 branches: one in Ginza 8chome, one in Ginza 5chome, and one in Yurakucho. The bar claims to be the cheapest in Ginza and works with a ticket system. One ticket is worth 300 YEN and can be exchanged for drinks or food. (Some items can be bought with one ticket, others with 2). If you buy 10 tickets, you get a free one.
