Homemade Mojito Recipe

Happy (belated) Fourth of July & Independence Day to everyone! I hope you all have a terrific long weekend and stay happy & safe with your family and friends.

To kick this holiday weekend off, on Thursday my Mother-in-law and I made some wonderful homemade mojitos! In the spirit of things, I think today is a perfect day to share that recipe.

you can't really see, but here is us squeezing the limes!
This really is one of the easiest (and most delicious!) homemade mojito recipes you can find. Here is what you will need:

Light rum
Fresh limes
Mint leaves
Simple Syrup
Ice
Club Soda

To start with, get squeezing those limes! I used 10 average-sized limes, and ended up with enough lime juice for about 6 pint-sized mojitos. Once you've got all the limes squeezed, you'll want to make simple syrup- just warm up about a cup of water on the stove, and add as much syrup as can be absorbed. Then your ready to make mojitos! Here are the official ingredients:

2 parts light rum
1 part lime juice
Mint leaves
Simple syrup to taste

Muddle the mint leaves in a shaker, then add the rum, lime juice, and simple syrup. Pour it all over ice, stir it up, and then add club soda to taste and you are good to go!

Mojitos are one of my favorite summer time drinks, especially because you can adjust the ingredients to your personal taste. What is your favorite summertime drink?

  1. Have you tried putting a little bit of lemon in your mojito?

    1. I haven't tried lemon - perhaps I will have to do that next time I make mojitos!
