Default Yes... another alcohol question....

Okay, so my sis and I have been experimenting new drinks at home and like everyone else we have also tried the Mojito.
Now, I just saw that on the Splendor, they have "The Mojito Wine Bar"
None of the recipes includes wine.... can anyone tell me what Mojito means?
And why is the Wine Bar named after a drink that has no wine...?
or is there a version with wine?

Not important, but my sis and I were discussing this and I said hey, "I'll ask my friends on cruisemates, they will know."

I found a Cruisemates article on the Splendor. Here is a link to the article http://www.cruisemates.com/articles/...dor-070908.cfm
This is from the article.

Since the Mojito orignated in Cuba this is probably why it's named after the Mojito. According to the deck plan it's called "El Mojito Wine Bar" and it's on Promenade deck (deck 5). I'm sure you can get a Mojito at the wine bar. I love mojitos and I make a tasty one.

Oh, I love mojitos!

This is a classic recipe but I believe there are lots of varieties out there.

Ingredients
6 fresh mint leaves
caster sugar, to taste
½ lime, cut into wedges
60ml/2¼fl oz rum
ice
100ml/3½fl oz sparkling water
Angostura bitters
1 sprig mint, to garnish

Method
1. Muddle the mint, sugar and lime together.
2. Add the rum, then fill the glass with ice and top up with the sparkling water and a splash of Angostura bitters.
3. Garnish with a sprig of mint, and serve.

Tip: Stir well and use your imagination for different flavours. For example, adding strawberries or chillies works well.

During my time on the Splendor it just seemed like a regular bar that did not specialize in any particular drink Mojito or wine...just another bar. 8)
