You may enjoy mojitos when you go out to restaurants, but they are really easy to make at home. This famous cocktail from Cuba has become very popular worldwide in recent years. And you only need a few basic ingredients to make them.
I like to use Bacardi white rum in my mojitos. Bacardi is also perfect for using in other drinks such as rum punch, daiquiri, and pina colada. They even make different flavors of rum such as Banana.
Mojitos are great for entertaining since most people enjoy these tropical beverages and they go well with food. If you want to learn more about this popular cocktail, check out History of the Mojito: How Ernest Hemingway's Favorite Cuban Drink Became an Artisanal Latin Staple.
I love mojitos with all sorts of different foods. You can make a DIY Taco Bar with Jackfruit Black Bean Taco Filling and sip them by the pool or on the patio.
Everyone will be happy when they're eating chips with guacamole and salsa and delicious tacos while sipping a fresh pineapple mojito. And they also pair well with Mediterranean dishes like Spanish Gazpacho, Tomato Onion Salad, and Spinach Orzo Salad.
Or serve them the next time you're making some Vegan Grilling Recipes.
A mojito is traditionally made with white rum, sugar, lime, mint, and soda water.
For this pineapple version, we'll be making a simple syrup to sweeten the beverage made from chopped fresh pineapple, coconut sugar, and water.
You can make the syrup ahead of time and refrigerate it until ready to use. Typically I only use a little sugar, but the amount depends on how sweet your pineapple is.
After you prepare the pineapple simple syrup, preparing your fruity cocktail is quick and easy.
- Place lime wedges, pineapple chunks, and mint leaves in a tall glass.
- Muddle them to release their flavors.
- Add the pineapple syrup and rum.
- Stir to combine.
- Add ice cubes and soda water.
- Garnish with a pineapple wedge and enjoy!
