Mango Mojito

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.

    The best thing I did when I made my mango barbecue sauce was try to peel a mango on the rim of a glass like you see on Pinterest. Worked.like.a.charm!! Just slice in half, place the edge on the rim, and push. It does work!!

    These look amazing. I honestly could eat my weight in mango. Pinned!!

    Precut fruit is sometimes my savor. Oh and precut butternut squash. The words that fly from my kitchen when I am attempting to cut into one of those guys……but can I just have a few of these mango mojitos awaiting for me? That will make all well.

    Hello Mango!! What beautiful pictures! I would love this cocktail and can’t wait to try it in 3 1/2 months after I have baby girl! So so delicious. Totally agree about mangos…and the mango cutter thing doesn’t really work. Wish I could get my $5 back. Precut all the way girl!

    Girl, I spent $7.99/pound for precut mango because it’s just not worth cutting it myself.

    Totally making these this weekend! I don’t know if I’ve ever used mango nectar but I can’t wait to try it!
