This easy Mojito recipe is ready in 5 minutes. Mojito is a traditional Cuban cocktail that can be enjoyed at any occasion. This traditional Cuban cocktail combines sweetness with citrus to counter the strong kick of the rum. This refreshing, light drink is a great summer drink. Make it a mojito night with your family and friends!

  • 1 1/2oz light rum
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 lime
  • Mint sprigs
  • To taste: Soda water
  • In a large, chilled glass, squeeze the lime juice. Add the mint and sugar to the glass and stir until sugar dissolves.
  • Mix the rum in a glass and fill it with crushed ice
  • You can swirl the glass until it turns frosty.
  • To taste, add a splash of soda water. Serve with straws and garnish with mint.

Add a little dark rum to give it an extra kick.

Mix your mojito perfectly by using a shaker. Add the ingredients to the shaker and then shake it vigorously for about a minute. You should not go too crazy with the mint as it can cause the drink to be too strong.

You can make mojitos with white, light or even silver rum that you can find in your local supermarket.

You can substitute mint for other fresh herbs if you don’t like mint. For a stronger flavour, try rosemary or basil. Thyme will transform your mojito.
