A Mojito Float is the best of both worlds – the quintessential flavor of a mojito served with lime ice cream floating in a sea of rum!
It’s June and it is hot. These 90 degree humid afternoons have snuck up on me and I’m looking for a way to have my drink and eat it, too! If there’s one drink I can’t resist, it’s a good mojito with fresh mint and great rum. One sip and I’ve drifted away on vacation, if only in my mind.
I have combined two of my favorite treats (desserts and drinks) to create the ultimate summer cocktail – a mojito float. If June is any indication, I’ll be enjoying plenty of them this summer and hope you’ll join me!
A mojito float is a simple twist on the classic summer cocktail – a mojito. It has all the same great flavors, wrapped up into a boozy float!
It’s made with sugar, lime, mint, white rum, club soda, lime sorbet or sherbet.
Sherbet (which is often misspelled sherbert) is frozen fruit blended with 1 percent to 2 percent milkfat from milk or cream. A sorbet is also a frozen fruit based dessert without dairy. You can use either to create this amazing mojito float!

Mojitos are best with white rum. The below is an array of white rum that compliment the sweet lime flavor we all love!
