Cocktail Cagematch: Margarita vs Mojito By tigtog on 2010-02-11 • ( 11 ) Tonight, my vote is for mojito, so long as it’s made with really fresh mint and kaffir limes.

I have to come down on the side of margaritas, just can’t go past the salt rimmed glass myself. But no frozen margaritas because they are an abomination.
As I’ve never had a good margarita, I’m going to have to agree with tigtog on this and go for the mojito – and now, of course, I want a drink 🙂
Oh mojito for me! Also it’s just more fun to say…mo-JI-to! And mmm fresh zinginess
I’m so naive. I don’t think I’ve ever had a margarita. But mojitos, they rock. What did you end up going for?
Tonight, my choice was mojito. But on many other occasions, my choice has been

I guess Margaritas and Mojitos are both cocktails that play with sourness vs sweetness. It’s just whether one prefers tequilad + citrus-only flavours or vodka + limes and mint.
Mojitos, every time.
They remind me of the time a couple of years ago when I went out with a friend and she picked out all the mint to get the last bit of rum and deposited it in a wineglass. Really confused the bar-tender.

Rum in mojitos? I’ve only ever had vodka based ones. Intirgued by the rum possibilities.
White rum, usually. Big fan of raspberry mojitos, myself!
It’s not a mojito if it doesn’t have rum in it!! I mean, it’s *Cuban* for heavenssakes!
Also, isn’t ‘kaffir’ a racial slur? I believe “Asian lime” is a more palatable term.
Oh, I vote for margaritas. Mojitos are toooooo sweet for me.
Ah, I was introduced to mojitos by a friend who simply doesn’t like rum, so obviously the vodka just happened on her watch without me realising that I was getting a variation! I suspect the vodka version is also less sweet than a rum version would be, which is generally my preference.
The Kaffir people of Sri Lanka must get a bit sick of having their name automatically associated with etymologically unrelated Afrikaaner slurs, and apparently the name for the Indonesian lime came from yet another linguistic path, but I do see your point.
Mojitos every time!
Now I’m craving them…
