The mojito is the embodiment of a traditional recipe grown up from local, available ingredients. It’s agriculturally sensitive to the land of Cuba — sugar cane, rum, mint. The Asian pear is hearty in a variety of areas around the USA and abroad. Apples and Asian pears add a fresher, more local twist of flavor.

Asian Pear Mojito (2 glasses)

Juice the following

* 1 Asian pear
* 2 small apples (the kind that fit in whole)
* 1½ limes, peeled

For Each Glass

* 3 fresh mint sprigs
* 1½ ounces light rum
* piece of sugar cane taller than the glass (if available)
* club soda


1. In a tall slender glass, crush part of the mint with a fork or muddler or sugar cane (best) to coat the inside.
2. Add the sugar and lime juice and stir thoroughly. Top with ice.
3. Add rum and mix. Top off with *chilled* club soda (or seltzer).
4. Add a lime slice and the remaining mint, and serve.
