Make a single cocktail or an entire pitcher to enjoy with friends. This Mango Mojito is the perfect sip to add to your Cinco de Mayo Menu line-up and beyond.

I’ve had so much fun working on this Mojito series to share with you! I’ve enjoyed each and every sip of all these fruity cocktails, and I hope you are enjoying them as well.

It’s easy to make, fun to drink, and full of the flavors of your favorite warm and sunny destinations. Much like my Mango Margarita and Coconut Mojito, this one will transport you to the islands as you sip from your patio at home!

Sweet summertime joy, that’s what this cocktail is! Come see how easy it to make your own.

Mango Mojito Ingredients

  • Mango Purée – You can use fresh or frozen mango to make your purée, but I always tend to choose fresh for the best flavor.
  • LimesFresh lime juice is always best, but you can take a shortcut with a bottle of lime juice if you’re short on time!
  • Mint – Fresh mint leaves are a necessity for any good mojito.
  • Sweetener – Store bought or homemade simple syrup adds a hint of sweet flavor to this cocktail! To make your own just allow equal parts sugar and water to dissolve in a pot over medium heat. You can also substitute with white granulated sugar or sugar cubes if you prefer.
  • White Rum – Aka blanco rum, silver rum, and light rum. You can learn more about the best rum for mojitos here!
  • Soda Water – Club soda or sparkling water adds a little bubbly to this refreshing cocktail.

Variations

  • Make Skinny – Substitute diet lemon lime soda for simple syrup and club soda to reduce calories.
  • Make a Mojito Float – Add a scoop of mango or Lime Sorbet (much like my favorite Mango Margarita Float) for the ultimate adult refreshment and dessert, all at once.
  • Use Vodka, Gin, or Tequila – Even though rum is the base for a classic mojito, it’s always fun to experiment with different flavors!

Tools

  • Muddler
  • Jigger
  • Cocktail Shaker or Stirrer

How to Make a Mango Mojito in Five Easy Steps

  1. Create – Mango Purée by pulsing mango in your food processor or blender until completely smooth. Set aside.
  2. Muddle – Combine limes, mint, and sugar or simple syrup in a cocktail shaker and muddle to release the juices and flavors.
  3. Strain – Strain over a cocktail glass.
  4. Pour – Add mango puree, rum, ice, and soda water. Stir.
  5. Garnish – To serve, garnish with lime wedges, sliced mango and mint sprigs.

Serving Suggestions

  • Rim Glasses – Run a lime wedge along the rim of your glass. To line the glass, dip the edge in a plate filled with white granulated sugar.
  • Garnish – A slice of fresh mango and sprig of mint to garnish makes this cocktail pretty and delicious!
  • Foods  A mango mojito would pair well with Mexican-inspired favorites like the Best Beef Tacos, Chicken Enchiladas and Crazy Good Carne Asada.

Tips

  • Use Fresh Mint and Fresh Limes – It makes such a difference to the flavor and fragrance!
  • Ripe mangoes – They have to be ripe! To get all that juicy nectar out of a mango, you’ll want them to be perfectly softened and ready to purée.
  • Balance – Not all mojitos are the same – and that’s great! Experiment with the amount of mint, lime, fruit, rum and sweetener until your mojito is the perfect mix for you.

Shortcuts

  • Make a simple syrup ahead so it’s ready to go when you are. You can store it in the refrigerator for up to a month! You can also use store-bought simple syrup or white granulated sugar to save time.
  • Make mango mojito by the pitcher (directions below) if you’re serving a crowd.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is J silent in mojito? How is mojito pronounced?

It’s pronounced mow-hee-tow. The j is silent and pronounced as more of an H sound.

Can I make a mojito without mint?

If you don’t have fresh mint, you can try basil, thyme or rosemary for a fresh, flavorful spin. However, a classic Cuban mojito is always made with mint!

How to Store Mango Mojito

  • Refrigerate – The simple syrup in mojitos can last in the refrigerator for up to a month. A pitcher of mango mojitos can last in the fridge for a few days, but don’t leave lime peels in it for more than 24 hours or they can turn the flavor bitter.
  • Freeze – Freeze in ice cube trays overnight then transfer to an airtight container. When ready to use, drop several cubes into a glass and let thaw in the refrigerator. Instant mango mojito! Note that the flavor may be slightly altered.
