This is a traditional mojito recipe, very similar to the drinks I enjoyed in Varadero, Cuba. The muddling and the order of the ingredients helps ensure that all the flavors are well blended. Serve with a straw and a decorative stir stick to keep the different flavors well mixed together. Mint sprigs may be used for a garnish instead of lime wedges. Enjoy!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint
  • ½ cup white rum
  • 2 cups club soda
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • 2 wedges lime, as garnish

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place 1 teaspoon of sugar into each of two 12 ounce glasses. Squeeze the juice from a lime wedge into each glass, drop in the wedge, and add 2 sprigs of mint. Use a spoon or muddler to mash the sugar, lime juice, and mint together in the bottom of the glasses. Fill each glass about half full with crushed ice. Pour 1/4 cup rum into each glass. Fill the glasses with club soda, stir, and garnish with additional lime wedges.

Reviews

  1. Refreshing simple and delicious! I added lilikoi juice to mine and liked it even more yum!
  2. This drink is just o.k. I have made this for several different gatherings adding more sugar each time and I still hear from guests that it needs to be sweeter.
  3. Not sweet enough for my taste. Even doubled the sugar.
  4. Mojitos' generally are sweeter in my opinion however those who opted for the drink liked it.
  5. Really good mojitos but we went out and bought a muddler the next day because I couldn't get the mint nice and mashed!
  6. YUM! Just like vacation. Made recipe exactly. Perfect.
  7. This is a true Mojito! A must have recipe-I spend most of my summers in and around the Carribean, this drink always takes me back there!
  8. THIS is a real mojito!!
  9. go poolside with this one:)
