The first thing you notice when you sidle up to the approximately eight foot bar (that’s pretty much all there is to Mojito Bar, besides some chairs on the beach) are the melons. The pineapples. The oranges, papaya, watermelons and more—all beautifully on display. Thankfully, all those round goodies aren’t just for show either. Nope, every drink you order is made fresh from a little squeeze of this or a pinch that.
For me on my last visit, I couldn’t fathom ordering anything but the namesake drink, and with co-owner Sonia behind the bar, I knew I’d also be getting that special ingredient.
Instead of just lime juice, it also has lime slices in it’s beautiful depths, but that’s not what makes it so special… I pick up my bright mojito and take a sip—all the while under the smiling gaze of Sonia.
Ahhhh… There it is.
The not-so-secret ingredient found in every drink at Mojito Bar.
Even better, in this case love comes cheap! One mojito costs just 100 pesos! That’s around $3 US! If you’re hungry (which you should be when visiting) you can get an Italian ciabatta sandwich on fresh baked bread and an equally fresh fruit juice for just 120 pesos. And as if all this inexpensive love wasn’t enough, Mojito Bar even does a two-for-one happy hour every day from 3 to 5 (except Tuesday’s when they’re closed).
