Cuba is the birthplace of the mojito, so it should be no surprise that the cocktail can be found almost anywhere in Miami, especially at TK's at the Villa Mayfair where Mojito Madness is now available.

Mojito Madness is an all-mojito cocktail menu. It includes at least 20 flavors: classic, watermelon, vanilla coffee, island, chipotle cacao, pineapple, banana coconut, beet, wild berry, mango, raspberry, chocolate mint, strawberry, apple, orange, blueberry, strawberry banana, peach, coconut, chocolate mint and elderflower. The cocktails are priced at $10 each and are available all day at TK's.

TK's mojitos may be a bit different than what the rest of Miami makes. They use pure sugarcane, fresh ingredients and freshly-squeezed limes instead of lime wedges. This is to avoid any bitterness. They also used crushed ice instead of cubes, so the melting water from the ice helps to blend all of the ingredients together.

Some of the flavors might seem a bit unorthodox, such as the beet mojito -- but this one is chock full of nutrients. The freshly cooked beets are full of nitrates, folate, potassium, vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants. TK's chef makes her own beet juice - with hints of aromatic orange, anise seed and cinnamon.

TK's uses Ron Botran, which is a Guatemalan rum that produces a premium line known as the Zacapa. The brand is endorsed by Miami's Emilio Estefan.

Even though Mojito Madness is available all day at TK's, the cocktails will not be enjoyed without a taste of classic Cuban ambiance. Beginning on Friday, September 5, and every Friday from 6:30 p.m. to close, Latin musicians (from solo guitarists to multi-piece bands) will play live music for guests. TK's will have a cigar roller on hand as well.
