There is this little shop in Curacao in the town of Willemstad. Willemstad is divided into two parts by a busy shipping channel. One side of the channel is called Otrobanda and the other side is known as Punda. If you wind your way around the narrow shopping district of Punda you will find the Mojito man.
Milton used to be an English teacher in Venezuela. He speaks English so well we were certain he hailed from a Southern California beach town. But he doesn't.
Milton makes a great Mojito.
Making a Mojito requires fresh limes, fresh mint and of course rum. Milton is not shy about sharing his recipe.
Milton is a connoisseur of rum. He has rum from all over Latin America. He lets the Captain sample some of his wares while we wait for the Mojito Man to cast his spell. Ah,the smell of the fresh limes and mint is heavenly and the taste is exquisite.
Lots of people know about the Mojito Man. Friends Jack and Zdenka are also Mojito fans.
Zdenka gives her Mojito a 5 star rating.
Just so you don't think life is all fun and games. Here is what drives us to visit the Mojito Man once in awhile.
