Watering the Cuban Mojito transplants. This variety is the only true Mojito mint, and Richters brought it in from Cuba in 2006. Their website doesn't mention how they pulled that off. It has a mild warm scent, compared to the sweet, pungent notes of typical spearmints, so It won't overpower the high notes in your booze.
Five small transplants took over a large grain bag with their rhizome (creeping) root systems, so planting them in containers is in your, and your garden's best interest. The mint has been in your Parts and Labour Bar cocktails since the Spring of 2011. Please come taste the variety that was in the Ernest Hemingway's favorite drink.
