There is something so deliciously refreshing about a good mojito. They clear the palate, whilst packing a punch of lime and minty flavours, and are so delicious they're dangerously drinkable.
There's been lots of variations on this Cuban drink over the years, but deep down our heart belongs to the humble and simplistic mojito. Considering summer is just around the corner, and every bar in the city is sprucing up their outdoor areas we thought it was about time to draw up a list of the top ten mojitos in Dublin.
Consider it a 'To Do' list, if you feel up to the challenge...
10. Vintage Cocktail Club
A very good cocktail in a seriously cool, slightly secret location.
9. The Morgan
Never the place to only get one drink, book out the slick penthouse and get them sent up to your room all night long.
8. Marco Pierre White
We can't decide which mojito on the menu is our favourite – the sparkling version which is finished off with a splash of bubbly, or the wildberry edition with fresh wild berries and some Chambord liqueur.
7. Peruke & Periwig
Known for their crazy concoctions, and insane apparatus for making drinks – we're happy to report that they keep things simple with their mojito recipe and it's insanely delicious.
6. The Exchequer
Great city centre bar for grabbing a few cocktails after work, and on weekends all cocktails accompanying their brunch menu are €7 before 5pm.
We're big fans of this bar, and it's even better when you nab a seat on the upper terrace!
4. The Mint Bar
It would make sense that a bar called the Mint Bar would serve mojitos, and jaysus are they good. This place in the Westin Hotel is one to check out for anyone that considers themselves a mojito aficionado.
3. The Bernard Shaw
Very chilled vibes in this spot, seriously sound bar staff and two mojitos for a €12 – you can't say no! They're the same mojitos that can be found in the Twisted Pepper on Abbey Street, if you're out for a boogie.
2. Fade Street Social
Come for the cocktails, stay for the grub – and chill in their Winter Garden, which stays remarkably toasty all year round.
1. The Marker
Not only do they have a stunning rooftop bar with amazing panoramic views of the city, but their Mojito Royal is made up of all the normal components and then finished with champagne. Very glam altogether!
