Making a Classic Mint Mojito

The Muddle. The Liquor. and The Bubbly

This classic Mint Mojito recipe, with freshly squeezed lime juice and homemade simple syrup, is a refreshing drink in this summer heat.

Classic Mojito Recipe

Mojitos. This Cuban delight owes it’s popularity much to -believe it or not- the Prohibition era when Americans set their sights on Havana’s beachy nightclubs to satisfy the need for a Night Cap. Here is where the Mojito became the sophisticated little concoction they are today.

Before this, mojitos were made by Cuban farmers from barely palatable rum that required sugar, lime, and mint just to mask the taste. In Havana, the mojito got dressed up in a tall glass with ice and carbonated water to wow American vacation goers and rum smugglers alike.

They are some of the most popular cocktails ordered at bars, and your bartender might hate you a little bit for asking for one. The Reason? This delicious Cuban drink is a bit time-consuming to make and can have a messy cleanup.

We put together this version of a classic mint mojito using El Dorado White Rum, fresh mint, freshly squeezed lime juice, San Pellegrino Sparkling Water [because it’s fancier than regular club soda] and our homemade simple syrup.

Go ahead and venture from this recipe if you like and add more lime juice, syrup, or mint for added flavor. Customizing your drink to taste is key.
