A pleasant minty cocktail that’s so refreshing for a hot summer’s day. I didn’t have lemon-flavored rum, so I substituted lemon seltzer water for the soda water. I also used extra mint leaves ...

I've recently discovered I like mojitos, and this is no exception. I used bottled lime juice and regular white rum, per what I had on hand. I also prefer Diet 7up to club soda. CHEERS, Alycia!

Was very good, I used strawberry rum and a little less sugar.

Yummy! Followed the recipe but I didn't have club soda so I used tonic water and squeezed half a lime in each glass with lots of crushed fresh lime from my garden. So so good!

I added a tiny bit more sugar since my lime was extra big. Otherwise I stayed true to the recipe. Very nice flavor on this warm day!

We use dark rum and fresh mint from the garden. Good and strong. Also find that making each glass to order is thee only way. Using a shaker or to attempt a pitcherful...NO!

needs more mint leaves

This was really good, and I don't generally like alcohol! Couldn't find lemon rum so I made it with lemon liqueur and I enjoyed it.
