If you're keen to learn how to make Mexican Mojitos, this recipe is for you.





We've even broken it down into easy-to-follow steps! The best thing about this Strawberry Mexican Mojito is that it's not overly sweet – the strawberries add a subtle fruity flavour without being too overpowering or sickly. It's easy to adapt by mixing different fruits in with the strawberry puree – try mangoes or raspberries for something different! You can visit our recipes page if you want more inspiration when making cocktails at home. The main ingredient of a traditional mojito is white rum, but any good quality spiced rum will work perfectly here too. For added sweetness and colour, we recommend adding some fresh strawberries into your glass – they'll look amazing against the pale pink colour of the cocktail!





This drink works well as an individual serving if you're looking to serve something special on Valentine's Day; just pour everything into a highball glass and garnish with some fresh strawberries before serving alongside your favourite music and romantic lighting (if possible!).


Traditionally served in large glasses over ice cubes, this Strawberry Mexican Mojito makes an excellent long drink for summer parties or BBQs as well as being perfect for Valentine's Day celebrations. You can also add some crushed ice before pouring in your ingredients if you want a completely diluted version of this cocktail – simply pour all liquid ingredients into the glass first then top up half way with crushed ice before stirring gently using a bar spoon until combined completely (you may need two straws!).


There are many variations on how to make Mexican Mojitos; however we think this one is definitely one of our favourites because it combines two classic flavours – minty mojitos and fruity cocktails like pina coladas – seamlessly resulting in an incredibly tasty yet refined addition to anyone's drinks cabinet!

If you love cocktails as much as we do then we advise investing in some good barware – there's nothing worse than making amazing drinks in poor quality glasses! We particularly like these awesome mid-century style glasses from Amazon here.
