Enjoy a Fresh Pineapple Mojito made with Bacardi Superior Rum! They are easy to make with only a few simple ingredients.
You may enjoy mojitos when you go out to restaurants, but they are really easy to make at home. And you only need a few ingredients.
Bacardi rum 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.
What goes in a Fresh Pineapple Mojito?
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.
P.S. If you have leftover fruit, you can make Fresh Pineapple Salsa!
And look how easy it is to make a Fresh Pineapple Mojito!
