Who makes a better mojito? Playboy playmate or Cuban bartender

Ernesto Hemingway once drank mojitos at Havana's Bodeguita del Medio bar. The recipe for the Bodeguita's mojitos is below, according to Taste of Cuba:
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
Juice from 1 lime (2 ounces)
4 mint leaves
1 sprig of mint
Havana Club white Rum (2 ounces)
2 ounces club soda
Here's a five-minute video showing a bartender taking his time while making a mojito in socialist Cuba. And here is capitalism's version - a video a Playboy playmate making the drink.
