“Muddle” is a bartending term meaning to crush or bruise fresh herbs to release their flavor. To make a mojito, a muddling tool is used (it looks like a tiny baseball bat) to crush mint leaves in the bottom of a glass. If you don’t have this tool, the handle end of a wooden spoon works just fine for muddling ingredients. Use this tip to make a Classic Mojito or Orange Mojito.

We lived in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for 11 years which makes Mexican food a large part of our repertoire. We were both born and reared in New Orleans. My heritage is Southern Italian. Ray's is Southern Italian, Cajun, and German. Our hometown combined with our heritage and travels makes for an interesting mix of food passions.
We love the Crescent City, it's food, it's culture, and it's people. We want to bring a bit of our beloved hometown to our new hometown of San Antonio. We have been here awhile now and love the Texas culture and spirit. We are now polishing the Texas influence on our cooking. Great fun!!
