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!

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 ...

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!

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.

I made this about 5 times amount in a large jug for friends. Was a big hit. Also hits you hard after a few of them.

Delightfully delicious! Will make again and again.

Yum! I only used sugar to rim my glass as I dont care for sweet drinks. Used regular white rum as that is what I have on have and a lemon flavored water. Love mint & lime.. This was my first EV...
