Mojito Mint

Mentha x villosa

If you're growing herbs and cooking, there's no reason not to include mint mojito plants, particularly this well-known variety. Although some recipes call for any form of spearmint, only the true Mojito Mint can be used to make a true mojito. This Cuban culinary herb was previously unavailable in North America, but thanks to Toronto mojito enthusiast Catherine Nasmith, it is now accessible. Mint water is a perfect alternative to soda or sugary drinks if you're looking for a safer alternative. Mint water is a simple and nutritious beverage with multiple health advantages. It's sugar-free, caffeine-free, and low in calories.
