Classic Mojito Recipe
If you have an abundance of mint in your garden this year, we have one word for you: mojitos! This bubbly Cuban cocktail is zesty, sweet, and packed with minty flavor. It&rsquos a refreshing drink that&rsquos perfect for all summer occasions, including a Fourth of July party, weekend barbecue, or happy hour. The classic mojito recipe is made from a combination of rum, mint, sugar, lime juice, and club soda. It may look fancy, but this easy cocktail recipe can be made right at home&mdashand it&rsquoll make you feel like you&rsquore on vacation!
How do you make a mojito from scratch?
You can make the best mojito in just two simple steps. First, muddle the ingredients: place the mint leaves, lime wedges, and sugar in a cocktail shaker and muddle to release the juices from the lime and the oils from the mint. The sugar helps to &ldquobruise&rdquo the mint leaves and bring out more flavor. Next, shake it up with the rum and some ice. Once chilled, the mojitos are served over ice with club soda and lots of mint and lime slices for a pretty presentation.
What kind of rum is best for mojitos?
For a classic mojito recipe, you&rsquoll want to use white rum. A good quality rum is important, especially since there are so few ingredients in the drink.
How do you muddle mint without a muddler?
A cocktail muddler is used to lightly crush the mint and release it&rsquos oils, but if you don&rsquot have one handy, you can always use the back of a wooden spoon.
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 1/2 cups packed mint leaves, plus 12 mint sprigs, for garnish
- 6 limes, cut into wedges
- 2 cups light rum
- Cracked ice
- 3 cups Champagne or sparkling wine
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water and cook over high heat just until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool to room temperature.
In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the mint leaves and lime wedges and muddle well with a wooden spoon. Add the rum and stir well. Strain the drink into another pitcher.
Fill tall glasses with cracked ice and pour in the drink, filling them about two-thirds full. Top with Champagne, garnish with the mint sprigs and serve.
Yes, you can absolutely make mojitos with Vodka. You&rsquod just do a 1:1 swap with the rum. To enhance the &ldquoraspberry&rdquo flavor you could even do Raspberry Vodka.
- In a tall cup, add fresh raspberries, 4 wedges or slices of lime, and fresh mint. Muddle mixture with a muddler or just use the back of a spoon.
- Add more lime juice and agave nectar. Stir.
- Finish with ice cubes and soda water, stir and serve!

25 Easy Champagne Cocktails That Aren't Mimosas
Champagne: the drink of celebratory cheers and wedding toasts. But why should we save it for special occasions? Sure, we mix an ounce of champagne with a drop of OJ for our (at-home) brunch mimosas, but we don't think of champagne as the go-to mixer when we wanna get our drank on after the sun goes down. Why though? You can get a decent bottle of champagne at a comparable price to our lord and savior, vodka, it's certainly versatile, and it adds that nice bubbly kick that you can't get with other alcohol.
