So the first stop on the Mojito Madness tour was Mezè in Adams Morgan. Whenever I throw out the “who has the best mojitos question”, Mezè is one of the first places mentioned. To make things even better, they have a half price mojito happy hour. When I saw the list i knew that i would have to get thru all of them to determine the best one and then i could compare that one to the others in the area.

I figured the best place to start was the Classico. That’s the Classico on the left, BJ had the mango mojito on the right. The Classico was good… really really good. I sat and watched as the bartender muddled the mint and lime and added in the rest of the ingredients… that first sip was heavenly… Now, i should take this time to throw in a disclaimer… since i gave up drinking for Lent all I’ve had was one vodka/cranberry and 2 glasses of wine… So there may have been more at play than just the deliciousness of that particular mojito.
That being said, it really was a good mojito. Not too sweet or too limey or anything that a mojito can be sometimes. It was just really crisp and good. It was so good in fact, that I decided tat I should just go ahead and move on to my second one. I couldn’t resist the ginger mojito. I actually was trying to decide which one i wanted when i saw the bartender pull out the fresh ginger and slice off a piece. I was sold. The ginger mojito was better than the classico. The ginger gave it a somewhat spicy bite but the fresh mint and lime balanced it out.

So far, Mezè is 2 for 2. I’m a little torn at this point. I dunno if i should get all the way thru the Mezè list and then move on or what. Either way I wasn’t able to go to mojito happy hour today. The mojito rules (that i make up as i go along) clearly state that you can’t truly enjoy one if the outside temperature is below 75º. Today was cold and rainy so i passed but hopefully it’ll warm up soon and i can get back to business. In the meantime, please head over to Mezè and let me know what you think.
