Fruit Mojitos are the *fancy-human* version of this classic cocktail (that take less than 5 minutes to whip together).
I was never really known for my cocktails. Unless of course you mean the time in college when I made a jungle juice so strong that party-goers threw it out the apartment window. But fortunately, I have friends who teach me to make cocktails. So during our last blogger hot mess (a day in which Anouk and I create a delicious storm of Dutch/American recipes), I learned to make mojitos.
But not just any mojitos. Fruit mojitos! Which look like the sophisticated adult version of mojitos, while taking just 0.01% more time. You can use just about any fresh fruit you have on hand. We tried ours with frozen fruit and found that it didn’t break down as much as we would like, so fresh is best!
- 8 mint leaves
- 1 Tbsp cane sugar 10 g
- 1 shot white rum 1.5 fl oz or 50 mL
- 1/4 cup fruit of choice (mango, red berries, and passion fruit all work well) 20 g
- A few ice cubes
- 1/2 cup club soda 120 mL
- 1/2 lime, juice optional
- Muddle: Add mint leaves to the glass and gently muddle to release oils*. Add sugar, rum, and fruit, muddling again to roughly break down the fruit.
- Serve: Add ice then top with club soda, optionally squeezing in the juice of half a lime (if it suits the fruit you’re using).
