Traditionally, a mojito is a cocktail that consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane juice), lime juice, sparkling water, and mint. The original Cuban recipe uses spearmint or yerba buena, a mint variety very popular on the island. Its combination of sweetness, refreshing citrus, and mint flavors is intended to complement the potent kick of the rum, and have made this clear highball a popular summer drink. The cocktail has a relatively low alcohol content (about 10 percent alcohol by volume).

In Raymond Benson’s novelisation, he describes the drink as below:

"Bond ordered a Mojito, a Cuban drink made from two ounces of light rum, one 
ounce of lime juice, two teaspoons of sugar, a small handful of spearmint and 
soda water that was served in a tall glass."
