It’s hard to find mojitos at any of the restaurants in the small town I’m stationed in, and when I tried to make my own using club soda, they never seemed to turn out right. Using lemon-lime soda also cuts down on the amount of sugar usually used.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 12 leaves mint
  • 2 lime slices
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar, or more to taste
  • ¼ cup ice cubes, or as needed
  • 1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger rum (such as Bacardi®)
  • 4 ½ ounces diet lemon-lime soda (such as Diet Sprite®)

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place mint leaves, lime slice, and sugar in bottom of a glass and muddle with a spoon until mint is crushed. Fill glass with ice cubes. Pour rum and soda over the ice; stir.

  1. Great recipe. I made a special Green Dragon version of this. It tasted great. However, next time, I would probably make sugar water first as my friends said they can taste the granulated sugar.
  2. Quick to make tastes amazing
  3. This is a great mojito for this amount of effort--appropriately named. If you really do a good job on the "muddle", it is delicious. We have found that a drinking straw is key to enjoying this drink. All the good stuff is on the bottom, and you get a taste of all of the ingredients - Read more ...
  4. Make sure you use spearmint not peppermint. I would use Nellie & Joe's Key West lime juice instead of real limes to make it even easier (unless you're serving it to company) and I would probably use regular 7-Up instead of diet because then the sugar part is also taken care of for you.

  5. I followed the recipe exactly and it is one of the best mojitos I ever had yum!! Thank you for the recipe!
  6. This was very very good! Very refreshing and went down way too easy! The measurements were perfect! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
  7. I love this recipe. I have always made mine with Sprite or other brand of lemon lime soda. Its an easy recipe for parties.
  8. Perfect! Used regular Sprite instead of diet because that's all I had. Delicious and helps me use up the mountain of mint that's taken over my garden!
  9. I've been on a big Mojito kick lately and I've been using Diet 7up in place of club soda per personal preference so this was a huge hit with me! I used 2 tsps of sugar and bottle lime juice. This will be a repeater at the LTH house! CHEERS Jennifer!
