This mango mojito is the perfect combination of rum, mint, and sweet mango nectar. This drink is perfect for sipping by the pool and dreaming of warm weather.
Summer is all about the light and refreshing cocktails!
In this case, that cocktail is a delicious mango mojito. A fruity spin to an already tasty cocktail.
It’s super refreshing and goes down pretty easy. Especially on a hot day.
We all know how much I love mango, right? It’s the absolute perfect summer fruit!
If you happen to have fresh mango on hand you could easily puree your own to create your own mango juice OR be on the lookout for mango nectar in your store. It can typically be found in the international aisle.
What is a mojito?
A mojito is a classic drink from Cuba. It’s light, refreshing, and just slightly sweet.
Traditionally speaking a mojito is simply white rum, fresh limes, fresh mint, sugar, and club soda.
To release all the flavor of the mint it’s important to not skip the step of muddling your mint in the glass. I like to use a wooden muddler to help gently bruise the mint to release its flavor.
Do I have to use white rum in my mojito?
Yes and no.
Do you want it to have a more traditional flavor? Then, yes, you’ll want to use white rum.
Not a fan of white rum? I have used vodka in its place and while the outcome is delicious it does change the flavor profile.
I also used coconut rum in my coconut mojito.
Which is obviously delicious but you gotta love that coconut flavor.
