Some alcoholic beverages beginning with “M” are margarita, martini, and mojito. Mountain Dew, Mug Root Beer, Monster Energy, and Minute Maid are nonalcoholic beverages that begin with the letter “M.”
1 1/2 ounces of tequila, 1/2 ounce of triple sec (an orange-flavored liqueur), and 1 ounce of lime juice comprise a margarita. Pour all three ingredients into an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Pour the cocktail into a chilled glass with a salted rim after shaking. Serve the margarita on the rocks or straight up.
A martini contains four ounces of gin and one ounce of dry vermouth. Pour both ingredients into an ice-filled cocktail shaker and whisk. Pour the drink into a martini glass filled with ice. Olives may be used as a garnish.
The components for a mojito are ten mint leaves, one-half of a lime sliced into four wedges, two teaspoons of white sugar, one-and-a-half ounces of white rum, and one-half cup of club soda. In a glass, muddle the mint leaves and one lime slice. Add the sugar and two additional lime wedges, and then crush the mixture again. The glass should be filled with ice before the rum and club soda are poured in and stirred.
