Ingredients You Need

First off, a great mint mojito should include just the right sweet simple syrup. To make mint simple syrup you, well, simply need water, granulated sugar, and fresh mint leaves. That’s it!

Now then, here is all that’s needed to make the best pitcher of Mojitos:

  • White rum or vodka
  • Mint simple syrup or just traditional non-flavored simple syrup, if you prefer
  • Lime juicefor that lovely sour bite to balance the sweetness of the syrup
  • Club Soda adds a bubbly kick for the most refreshing mojitos

I also like to use some extra lime slices and mint leaves to garnish the glasses.

How to Make Mint Simple Syrup

You can purchase pre-made simple syrup from the store. However, a homemade simple syrup really makes this mojito recipe extra special. Give it a try and you’ll be sure to impress your guests with this incredibly easy recipe!

  1. Set a small saucepot over high heat, and add the water and sugar. Stir and bring to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, stir again, then promptly remove from the heat.
  3. Then add the mint leaves, and allow the simple syrup to steep and cool for 30 minutes.

You can choose to leave-in or strain-out out the mint leaves. I like to keep them in because they have a softer texture than fresh mint leaves. No mint muddling required!

First, set out a large pitcher and pour in the rum, mint simple syrup, and lime juice. Stir to combine. You now can stick the whole pitcher in the fridge for up to a day, or continue preparing to serve mint mojitos immediately.

When ready to enjoy, stir in the club soda and fill the pitcher with ice and lime slices, if you like.

    1. This was fantastic. We doubled the recipe because alcoholism. We did not use all of the simple syrup; it was great with less as we don’t like mojitos too sweet. Fresh lime is key. Cheers! 

    2. Can you make the syrup a  or two day ahead or does it change the taste because the mint leaves are added??

    3. Thank you and Lt Dan Mojitos great touch 🥳
