Guarapo de Cana - Sugar Cane Juice; Yerba Buena?

headbroad | Mar 3, 2007 12:41 PM

I am trying to recreate a mojito I had recently in Miami. They used sugar cane juice. Apparently this is sometimes available fresh at Latin markets. Goya sells it in cans. Does anyone know any place to get this in the Boston area? Has anyone made guarapo from fresh sugar cane? If so, where is a good place to get fresh sugar cane: Super 88? I understand that organic sugar cane is preferred by many -- any ideas? How about finding yerba buena, which is a wild Cuban mint?
