I have served this to people who have sworn that they dislike mojitos and they love it. I believe it is the fresh ingredients and the use of sugar, instead of simple syrup, muddled together that makes this cocktail refreshing and delicious. It takes a little bit of work but the results are well worth it. Serve over ice.

This was my first attempt on making a mojito and after all the sites I went to I finally gave up and just picked this one. It's amazing I haven't had a mojito this good in a while. It's easy quick and delicious. I used 1 1/2 cups of captain Morgan white rum. Good stuff :D Read More

I'm not loving this recipe. A bit watered down from what I've had. In my opinion it needs double the lime and a bit more sugar to get some real flavor. Read More

Great recipe, easy and pretty consistent. It only fills 6 servings if using small glasses though. For tall glasses, you'll want to make a couple pitchers. Read More

Every year when the weather warms up, we have a Cuban party. I made another recipe the first year (I had a by the glass recipe), and between making mojitos and the Cuban sandwiches, I spent all my time in the kitchen. I found this recipe last year, and I simplified my life. I doubled the recipe so to fit our 2 liter pitcher, and muddled the mint and sugar ahead of time, enough for four pitchers. I really do prefer the actual sugar as opposed to the simple syrup recipes, and this one is just perfect. Take my advice and make them ahead if you are serving a crowd. You won't regret it. Read More

This is the best mojito recipe I have tried. I like the club soda instead of lemon lime soda because they aren't too sweet and I can make it easily with my Soda Stream. I used raw sugar instead of white sugar. The perfect pitcher on a hot Florida day. Read More

So easy and delicious! I doubled the recipe for a neighborhood bbq and they were fantastic. If you make ahead add the club soda when pouring into glasses to keep it bubbly as club soda goes flat quickly. Read More

It was pretty good, a little too sweet for me. Next time I will do about half the sugar and a little more liquor. It was also better the next day. I recommend making it the day prior to drinking Read More

Made this for a group of friends at the cottage and it was a hit! I used sprite for a base, and added more rum, lime juice, and sprite just to polish off ingredients. It was still a bit too sweet for some. It would still be good with less sugar. Read More
