Havana Club Rum Mojito Glass

There is no need to pay $8.50 for a Mojito at a bar. Make it at home. Easy to do.


  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 1/2 fluid ounces white rum
  • 1/2 cup club soda


  1. Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice, and fill the glass with carbonated water. Stir, taste, and add more sugar if desired. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.

JG; And if you visit Cuba, don't forget to bring back a bottle or two of Havana Club. It is much better than Bacardi.

Mexico's Economy Minister, warns Mexican companies not to get involved in Donald Trump's xenophobic wall

JG: Not strong enough. The minister should have threatened immediate nationalization of the companies that act against Mexico's best interests. The Mexican nation has to resist very strongly the evil policies of  the Yankee imperialists.

Super Stamp Gouger of the Year: British Virgin Islands

On December 9, 2016 The British Virgin Islands issued two stamps to commemorate the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.

They are being listed by Scott Catalog as follow:

#1170: $10.00 face value: $20.00   (mint),  $20.00   (used).
#1171: $90.00 face value: $180.00 (mint),  $180.00 (used).

Stamp collecting (philately) is dying. You go to a stamp show and you do not see any children. Only very old people.

Greed is everywhere.


It will be interesting to see the value that Stanley Gibbons publish in their catalog for those two stamps.

The first semi-final game of the 2017 World Baseball Classic is now history. You will be very surprised with who won.

Puerto Rico defeated The Netherlands 4-3 in 11 innings.

The Cariocas had 12 hits and the Tulips had 11.

No one committed an error.

Could it be that this is the Puerto Rico year at the World Baseball Classic IV?

The USA will face Japan tonight in the second semifinal game.

I predict that Japan will win that game. They have a superb team this year.

President Trump should apologize to Barack Obama

The FBI Director said today that they do not have any evidence that Barack Obama wired tapped Trump Tower.

Trump needs to control his paranoia.

Poll: Trump job approval hits new low. [37%]

Will he hit Richard Nixon's record low of 31%?

It is very possible.

Every time he opens his mouth, he sticks his foot in it.

Tomorrow night, Monday, at 9:00 pm EDT, The Netherlands vs Puerto Rico

I like both teams. May the best one win.


ABBA - Greatest Hits (ZDF,Kultnacht,2002)

The Health Care System of the USA is going BANKRUPT this nation.

Trump is a millionaire capitalist. He does not represent the working class.

He could care less about the people who do the real work.

The so-called Health Care legislation that his party is proposing in the U.S. House of Representatives SUCKS big time.

Puerto Rico wallops Venezuela 13-2 [Boxscore]

Another dumb Yankee who thinks he rules Cuba. His name: Rex Tillerson

... this snippet from the confirmation hearings for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson:

"Our recent engagement with the government of Cuba was not accompanied by any significant concessions on human rights," he said. "We have not held them accountable for their conduct. Their leaders received much while their people received little. That serves neither the interest of Cubans or Americans." (Orlando Sentinel)

JG: go and whine to Daddy Donald!
