May Day song
The moon shines bright, the stars give a light
A little before tis day
Our Heavenly Father, he called to us
And bid us awake and pray
2. Awake, awake, oh pretty, pretty maid
Out of your drowsy dream
And step into your dairy below
And fetch me a bowl of cream
3. If not a bowl of thy sweet cream
A cup to bring me cheer
For the Lord knows when we shall meet again
To go Maying another year
4. I have been wandering all this night
And some time of this day
And now returning home again
I've brought you a branch of May
5. A branch of May I've brought you here
And at your door I stand
'Tis nothing but a sprout, but it's well budded out
By the work of our Lord's hand
6. My song is done and I must be gone
No longer can I stay
So it's God bless you all, both great and small
And send you a joyful May

history of potatoes via Canary Islands
carried on board to prevent scurvy; this is why British soldiers were called "Limeys." The genus Citrus, as they hybridize quite easiky. In the West Indies, limes and lemons are not differentiated and the yellow one may taste like what I think green ones should taste like and vice versa
The British noticed that eating green fruits and vegetables reduced scurvy.
Now we know that scurvy is simply a lack on Vitamin C, which is been plentiful in limes. Citrus fuit varieties all come from a few species in the genus
sugar syrup or sugar cane syrup
Saccharum officianarum was introduced from New Guinea to Southeast Asia. Alexander the Great found sugar in India in 326 BC, and from there it followed Greek, Roman and Spanish conquests, resulting in its presence in Cuba with the British sailors with scurvy. Sugar was added to the lime juice to make it more palatable. (We humans love sugar so much that we end up cultivating it wherever it will grow.) It is believed that Christopher Columbus introduced sugar cane to Cuba on his second voyage of 1493.
"Cojito is a fresh as a Mojito but its coconut flavor makes it really new and different for Mojito addicted people."
Rum (or Aguardiente or Rhum) Aguardiente, a crude, sweet type of rum produced early in the fermentation and distillation progress, was thus a locally produced substitute for the beer sailors carried with them.
