Mojito Ingredients

To make this cocktail with a twist on a classic mojito, you will need the following ingredients (see the recipe card below for exact amounts):

  • White rum
  • Passion fruit: you will need passion fruit juice as well as the pulp. You can use bottled passion fruit juice, but will still need a fresh passion fruit for the pulp/seeds.
  • lemon juice: freshly squeezed is best
  • orange
  • mint leaves
  • ice

What is the Best White Rum?

For this recipe you will be using Añejo instead of Reposado, a dark rum which has been aged. White rum is great for tropical and fruity drinks. 

Rum is made from sugarcane, which grows in tropical climates. The best white rum will come from places like Puerto Rico and Asia. 

Always check the bottle when looking for rum at the liquor store. Here is a list of the best white rum.

Mojito Tips

If you want a stronger mint flavor and even more of an authentic mojito feeling put the mint leaves into the glasses first and carefully muddle them with a wooden spoon or a muddler. Just be careful not to overdo it so the mint taste doesn’t overpower the passion fruit.

Kid-Friendly Version

This can be served without the rum to have an alcohol free option. You can add some soda, but kids love it just like this.
