It's hard to find mojitos at any of the restaurants in the small town I'm stationed in, and when I tried to make my own using club soda, they never seemed to turn out right. Using lemon-lime soda also cuts down on the amount of sugar usually used.

I've been on a big Mojito kick lately and I've been using Diet 7up in place of club soda per personal preference so this was a huge hit with me! I used 2 tsps of sugar and bottle lime juice. This will be a repeater at the LTH house! CHEERS Jennifer! Read More

Perfect! Used regular Sprite instead of diet because that's all I had. Delicious and helps me use up the mountain of mint that's taken over my garden! Read More

Make sure you use spearmint not peppermint. I would use Nellie & Joe's Key West lime juice instead of real limes to make it even easier (unless you're serving it to company) and I would probably use regular 7-Up instead of diet because then the sugar part is also taken care of for you. Also Mexican 7-Up uses real sugar cane which is what the original recipe for this drink calls for so even better. Read More

This is a great mojito for this amount of effort--appropriately named. If you really do a good job on the "muddle" it is delicious. We have found that a drinking straw is key to enjoying this drink. All the good stuff is on the bottom and you get a taste of all of the ingredients from the first sip when you drink it with the straw. Read More

Great recipe. I made a special Green Dragon version of this. It tasted great. However, next time, I would probably make sugar water first as my friends said they can taste the granulated sugar. Read More
