Mojitos in Boston?

A bunch of us are going out for a friends birthday in a couple of weeks--can anyone recommend a place in Boston (downtown/back bay/south end) that serve great Mojitos? She's a big fan! Thanks!

      Eastern Standard. For my money, the "OLD CUBAN" is as good a mojito as you're ever going to get anywhere.

    2. Masa not only makes good mojitos, but is a lively and not-too-expensive South End place that's good for a group; it seems to get a lot of big 20-something parties on weekends. The Southwestern food won't make a dent on anyone from AZ or NM, but it has gotten a lot better under the current kitchen regime.

      1. Legal Test Kitchen on the waterfront. In addition to the regular mojito, they have a "special" one that they change every month or two like watermelon mojito or blackberry mojito(with fresh blackberries crushed in it). Their food isn't anything to brag about, but there are a few things that are pretty good. I love their chicken/shrimp asian wok omelet dish(can't remember the name of it). We keep going back for the mojitos.

        1. On the other side of the river, the bar @ Chez Henri in Cambridge makes them nice.

            I've always preferred the B-Side's mojitos to Chez Henri's, but I was never sure why.

            Then I saw Chez Henri's in progress: they used Rose's Lime Juice, while B-Side does not. Haven't ordered a mojito at Henri's since.

            joebelt: I've never had a mojito at Casablanca, but was impressed by their margaritas. Good ingredients.
