Thanks to Rum Therapy, here's another one to add to your mojito recipe files: a Dark Mojito. It's truly just a slight variation on both the perfect mojito and a dirty mojito, and in our opinion, it tastes the rummiest of the three! Use a dark rum with a taste that you find pleasant, as its flavor will rise above the milder tastes of mint and sugar.
