The simplicity of the mojito adds to its allure. In La Habana Vieja, a Cuban restaurant located on Commercial Street (220 E. Commercial St., Springfield, 417-771-5723), they make it simple, fresh and oh so good. With freshly squeezed limes, fresh mint, sugar and premium rum, and all that is missing is a little Celia Cruz and her Big Band playing in the background, and some tasty snacks for you to enjoy a trip to the island of Cuba!
