Delicious Mojito Recipes

A mojito is a Cuban cocktail, which is prepared traditionally with white rum, fresh lime juice, sugar syrup, carbonated water and fresh mint leaves. The base alcohol used in mojitos are white rum, but the alcohol content of this drink is really low. This refreshing drink has become really popular as a summer drink due to its invigorating taste of mint and lime juice. Mojitos have many variations and can be prepared with a variety of fruits. Mojitos are normally served on the rocks or with ice cubes in tall glasses like highball or Collins glass.

Raspberry Mojito

1 oz. + 1/2 oz. of Rum 2 fresh limes, squeezed 1 oz. of Chambord 1 oz. + 1/2 oz. of raspberry Rum 5-6 fresh mint leaves, torn Soda water 1 oz. of simple syrup 5-6 fresh raspberries


  1. Throw the raspberries into the blender and process them until they are roughly pureed. Once done, take a few ice cubes and tip them into a tall glass. Pluck off some fresh mint leaves from the stem and tear them up with your hands. Once done, throw them into the same glass over the ice cubes and then squeez the lime juice into it.

  2. Throw the lime rinds as well and then muddle the mixture until the lime wedges are flattened and all of the juice comes out of them. Once done, pour the fresh raspberry puree and the simple syrup into the glass and then muddle up the mixture once again until everything is well combined. 3. Finally, pour the rum, Chambord and the soda water slowly over the mixture and then mix things up either by shaking the mixture by covering up the glass with another glass or by pouring the mixture from one glass into the other. Once done, fill up the glass with some more ice cubes and serve immediately.
