Yes this is a great Mojito recipe. I have replaced the club soda with Sprite, which is a lemon-lime soda. Found it adds to the flavour.
This is a GREAT recipe!! We loved them on our 4th of July picnic. I have already made them again and just made another batch today. The only thing I did was add an extra 1/2 cup of Bacardi Rum and a little more mint leaves. Thank You for a GREAT summer drink!!!
So good!! I made 2 gallons to take on the river with us for our canoe trip and was passing it out. Everyone was asking how I made it. Wonderful. I did use Bacardi Citrus Rum but other than that followed the recipe. I will make this all the time now. Thank you!! :)
I LOVE this recipe!!! Instead of using all club soda - I mixed 1/2 club soda and 1/2 Squirt so that it had more ZING!! It was sooooo good! The girls drank the 1st pitcher in about 15 minutes and were begging for another! Sadly....I didn't have enough limes so they had to settle for wine.....now I'm prepared! I've squeezed 2 bags of limes and froze the juice! Thank you for the recipe!!!!!!
Thanks for this fabulous recipe! I bought a mint plant since I was making this so often! The freshness of the limes & mint are key. I add a little more mint & rum that the recipe calls for, but that is just my preference. This is a great base recipe to customize to personal taste.
Muy bien! This was such a refreshing mojito, and we really enjoyed them. Mojitos can be quite a labor-intensive drink to make one by one, so making a full pitcher was such a wonderful idea and time-saver. It made it possible to actually sit and have a pleasant conversation while everyone enjoyed their lovely cocktails. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Rita. Made for ZWT #7.
This is a fantastic recipe. The tricks to a good mojito are 1) freshness, and 2) the muddling to release the mint oils. I have had a multitude of poor mojitos over time. I will no longer order this drink when I'm out unless I know that a bartender can make a good mojito. The recipe provider here, Rita, has made emphatically clear how to make this drink properly. Ignore her warnings, and you end up with one of those blah drinks like I've had in so many bars and restaurants. It's really not worth your while to make mojitos unless you have fresh ingredients, and are willing to put in the time to make it according to the recipe. If you do this, you will have THE best summer refreshing drink you can imagine! As an aside, a mojito (good one) is the very first alcoholic drink of any type that my daughter could ever tolerate, and she couldn't wait to have us try one, because she actually liked it.
Perfect way to make Mojitos. Once the gals got a taste, that pitcher was empty in record time. I even had to snatch the pitcher away after one eager imbiber had already poured herself a mint-n-lime laden drink just to get a picture!
MARAVILLOSO MOJITOS ...... This was very easy and fast to make and made my Cinco De Mayo deleitoso !!! I will certainly use this recipe again and again :)
F.Y.I. for those who may be wondering how many ounces there are in a pitcher, the answer is 60 ounces. I won't be making mojitos for another few months, but this recipe sounds great. And, who can argue with a five star, 78 reviews rating? lol!
