Mason Jar Mojitos

A recent Girls Night outing inspired me to get creative in the kitchen and mix up one of my favourite cocktails - the refreshing & exotic mojito! I'm not sure why I was so intimidated by making my own, they were super easy and not at all expensive (especially compared to the $8 version at any restaurant or lounge). I searched through a few online recipes then tweaked them to suit my taste, easy-peasy!


Slice half a lime into 4 quarters

Muddle 1 lime slice with 8-10 mint leaves

Add 2 more lime slices & 3 tbsp of sugar then muddle 'em up!

Fill your glass with ice & 1 or 1 1/2oz of white rum

Top off with soda, stir & garnish with another slice of lime

Make another for a friend et voila!
Instant summertime happiness. I'm excited to get creative and mix in some other ingredients like cucumber or raspberries. This will most certainly be a staple at our house this summer, especially when the days are hot, hot, hot! What are your favourite mojito variations?

  1. These look SO good! Mojitos have always intimidated me too. Maybe I should just come over and you can make me one, ha! ;)
