Description

This Easy Pineapple Mojito recipe comes together in just a few minutes with 6 easy-to-find ingredients! With fresh mint, tart lime juice and sweet pineapple, it's super refreshing, perfectly balanced, and a total crowd pleaser.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 6 large mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 fl oz ounce lime juice (or half of a small lime, cut into wedges)
  • 2 fl oz white rum
  • 3 fl oz pineapple juice
  • 2 fl oz sparkling wine (or club soda)

Instructions

  1. Add the mint, sugar and lime juice/lime wedges to a cocktail shaker and muddle for about 15 seconds. If using whole lime wedges, make sure to squeeze as much juice out of the lime as possible. Let sit for a few minutes so the sugar can dissolve.
  2. Fill the cocktail shaker halfway with ice, then pour in pineapple juice and rum and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds.
  3. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice, then top off with club soda or sparkling wine. Garnish with lime wedge and fresh mint (optional).

Notes

Make it without alcohol (mocktail version): Substitute the 2 ounces of rum with another ounce of pineapple juice, a half ounce of lime juice, and another half ounce of club soda. Alternatively, try an alcohol-free spirit, like this rum alternative from Ritual Zero Proof.

Rum: You can technically use either white or dark rum in this recipe, but white rum is more traditional. Dark rum, however, would be delicious (and would add a bit more of a spiced flavor).

Pitcher version for a crowd: Multiply the quantities of each ingredient to make desired amount and store in a pitcher in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Wait to add the sparkling wine/club soda until just before serving. Pro tip: you can also wait to strain out the mint until just before serving so it has a bit longer to infuse.

Club soda or sparkling wine: either option works well to add a bit of fizz to top off your mojito.
