If there is one cocktail to divide opinion, it is surely the omnipresent Mojito cocktail. Some say it is a pain in the arse to make, is too frequently made badly, and is the mascot for unadventurous drinkers everywhere. Others say it is a refreshing and easy drinking cocktail that has introduced millions to the wonders of the mixed drink. Whatever side of the fence you sit on, it’s certainly helped line the pockets of a few mint-growers. Express delivery Singapore

Cuba is where the Mojito cocktail calls home, although whether it came about through the experimentations of African slaves in the 1800s, or was created by the explorer-cum-pirate-cum-mixologist Richard Drake way back in the 1500s is a matter for the historians to concern themselves with. Either way it wasn’t long before Bacardi saw the potential of this cocktail to market their rum, and the two have been synonymous ever since; helped of course by that most respected of inebriates Hemingway, who is said to have developed a taste during a visit to the bar La Bodeguita del Medio in Cuba

Some people contend that the Martini Cocktail is the best and most famous of all cocktails. In principle, the Martini drink is pretty straightforward; it only calls for gin and vermouth and is garnished with either an olive or a lemon twist. Knowing the right proportion of gin to vermouth to employ in a martini is difficult and frequently depends on the taste of the drinker. 

A freshly poured tumbler of gin is claimed to have received the phrase "vermouth" from Winston Churchill, according to legend. The Martini can be shaken or stirred, but despite 007's best efforts, it's generally recommended that stirring results in a better cocktail.Express delivery Singapore

The Cosmopolitan cocktail's ancestry is hotly debated. One rumor claimed that it was developed by Cointreau's marketing division to increase sales, which the drink's ubiquity undoubtedly accomplished. According to a different story, it was created in Minnesota's Cork and Cleaver Restaurant in 1975 in Minnesota and that the bartender who invented it went on to reintroduce it at the Fog City Diner in San Francisco, where it started to gain a big following. Probably the most popular account is that the cocktail was invented by a Florida bartender by the name of Cheryl Cook, who was driven by the aim of creating a martini-type drink that was visually stunning to look at.
