Tips and tricks on how to make a delicious mojito each and every time. Tasty as a fruity mojito, virgin or loaded up with alcohol. #cocktails #drinks #mojito 


  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp lime juice (fresh is best)
  • a small handful of fresh mint
  • 1 oz Rum (or vodka as I prefer)
  • Soda water (2-3 oz)
  • Ice


  1. In a glass, mix 1 tbsp of sugar with 3 tbsp of lime juice and 1 oz of rum or vodka.
  2. Add mint and muddle with a spoon, muddler, end of a rolling pin, etc.
  3. Make sure the mint leaves ‘bleed’ into the lime and alcohol mix.
  4. Add a handful of ice, and then top off with soda water (usually 2-3oz).
  5. Stir together and enjoy!


For a virgin mojito, omit the alcohol.

For a fruity mojito, add a handful of fruit or berries with the mint and muddle together with the lime and sugar.
