How to Make a Mint Mojito


  • Total Time: 5
  • Yield: 1 Drink 1x

Description

Whether you drink alcohol or not, this refreshing non-alcoholic (or not)  mojito is perfect for the summer! Made with simple ingredients in a matter of minutes, it’s sure to be a hit with the kids and adults alike.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 810 Mint Leaves
  • 12 tbsp sugar, to taste
  • 1 whole lime
  • Club Soda or sparkling water
  • Lots of Ice
  • 1.5 oz of white rum or Malibu (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cut one half of the lime into 4 wedges. Save the other half for garnish.
  2. To a tall glass like a highball glass, add the lime wedges, then the mint leaves.
  3. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime and release the oils. (link to my muddler)
  4. Add the sweetener to the glass and a splash of water to the glass and stir until the sweetener is completely dissolved. To make it dissolve fast, I like to shake it up really well with a lid.
  5. If you want to make it boozy, you can add 1.5 oz of white rum or Malibu in this step. I personally find virgin mojitos far more refreshing, so be sure to try it both ways!
  6. Cut the remaining half of the lime into slices. Place them in the glass and/or create a slit and use on for the rim.
  7. Fill the glass with lots of ice and top off with club soda. Don’t overdo the club soda, I wouldn’t recommend anything more than 8-12 fl oz for the amount of mint and lime used. To make a larger glass/batch, double or triple the recipe instead.
