‘Mix It Up’ Mojito Recipes

A Mojito made expertly is a wonderous thing. I have never even come close to fixing myself such a thing.  But my mixed up Mojito recipes are something else!

The beauty of Mixology is bringing together flavours that marry well and adjusting them to suit the tastes of the person drinking it.  I have seen a lot of new recipes using gin lately and although I was swayed to try them, I was left feeling underwhelmed. A Mojito for me can be many things, but to take away the rum is to take away the feeling a mojito inspires.

Yet there’s no point telling someone that they HAVE to have a drink a certain way. After all we drink for pleasure!

So I came up with three fun flavours for my Mojitos that are bound to bring you those summer vibes and put a smile on your face!

Raspberry Mojito

Raspberry mojito recipe

• 6 raspberries
• 6 mint leaves
• 1tbp sugar syrup
• 50ml golden rum
• 100ml soda
• crushed ice
• 1/4 lime

Place the raspberries, mint and lime in a glass and muddle – use the end of a rolling pin if you don’t own a muddler. Splash in the rum and syrup and fill with crushed ice. Top with soda and garnish with a few raspberries and mint.

Mango and Basil Mojito

Lemon and Blueberry Mojito
