Usually, whenever I buy a beverage, I get curious. I wonder who came up with the recipe or the country where it was first made. If you are anything like me, here is what you need to know about the Starbucks Mojito Refresher. Mojitos originate from Havana, Cuba. The South American Indians were among the first to enjoy this drink and believed it cured several illnesses.
A few staff from Starbucks decided to go creative and come up with a secret menu. They drew inspiration from this original recipe to make one of the signature beverages, The Starbucks Mojito Refresher.
