So what is a Mojito well according to Wikipedia

Mojito is a traditional Cuban highball. Traditionally, a mojito is a cocktail that consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint. Its combination of sweetness, citrus, and mint flavors is intended to complement the rum, and has made the mojito a popular summer drink.

Oh and if you are really looking for a Valentine Cocktail try this the Raspberry Nipple
