Best Mojito in Madison?

Postby iseektruth » Thu Oct 25, 2007 8:53 pm

The top on my list is definitely .. oh sh*t I forgot his name again... at Madison's. Guess it'll be my little secret. Be sure they've got fresh mint. I look forward to drinking a little summertime when there's 5 ft of snow on the ground!

Natt Spil is also pretty good.

The worst? Edgewater.

So that must be the only good thing there.

Too easy!
I've been there THREE times (insane? yep) eagerly giving our city's namesake just one more try.
Each time I slouched off vowing never to return.
Even the most simple thing in the universe---a BLT--was horrible. Insipid.
I pray at least the Mojito mint doesn't come from the kitchen.
Cool location, though.

Don't order one at Paisan's, or you will get ca-RUSHEDby sanctimonious Forons.

Wow. Hilarious because it wasn't me.
I do know one bar that keeps losing the bowl of mint:
servers keep thinking it's a decorative plant and placing on the window sill.

I had an excellent Mojito at Jade Monkey. No really, it was excellent.

Magnus has a surprisingly good one. But it's kind of a double-edged sword, because if you go there and get a mojito, it just means you got a rather ordinary drink when you could have had the yumm-diddly-umptious Batida, Magnus, or S. African Raspberry. Or their delightful chocolate martini. I'd say Pisco Sour too but they have those at inka heritage for cheaper, IIRC.

Best mojito in town? At my house. I finally found a use for all that G-D mint in my garden!

OK, maybe not in the winter.

i bartend in town, and i love making mojitos. just, not after 9 pm. you order one of those babies on a busy night and you'll get one tenth of my love of making mojitos. not that i can't pound one out, so to speak, quickly, but you're definitely not getting the sprig of mint at the end.

and what's with adding extraneous ingredients? such as soda water, or in the case of the edgewater, some shitty green tea liqueur?

A martini does not have chocolate in it, ever. Never, ever.
