I don't know if I like "Mojitos"....


Audacity, who happens to blog about my own institution quite a bit, spotted this one in Evans, GA. She suggests the "Mojitos" are actually Margaritas. Or maybe they're made out of those new mojito-flavored rums, not with real mint and lime. Regardless, that's a decent price for a cocktail. You can all wish you lived in GA now.

I do. Bars in New York are nuts. But seriously, a $4 Mojito? No wonder they had to use the quotes!

Actually I've had a quite fine mojito for $4 here in athens. I mean, it wasn't top shelf rum or anything, but it tasted good.

I had a "mojito" at Dave and Buster's in Miltpitas CA. After they gave me my drink, they told me that most people don't like it, because they use mint syrup instead of mint. Would have been nice to know BEFORE they made it for me! Unfortunately, it was more than $4 :(

Perhaps they used quotation marks because "Mojito" is both the name of the drink, and because they wished to keep the sign from reading, "Today's Special Drink Mojito". Of course, this begs as to why they didn't just change the font, or use a colon, but I digress.

Fair enough. My brother lives in Atlanta and took me out one night, but he insisted on getting the tab, so I have no idea what the drinks cost. I am always surprised, however, to travel and find $4 drinks. Pretty nice.

Mint syrup in a mojito is just evil.

I consider it fore-warning - I've had "Mojitos" - they s*@k (as opposed to Mojitos, which are great!)
