1. Strawberry mojito
Squish some bright red strawberries and muddle them into our easy strawberry mojito. Our secret ingredient for a bar-standard cocktail? A pinch of black pepper. It brings out the berries' natural sweetness and adds a subtle spice. This super-simple drink is a firm summer favourite, perfect for barbecue season or a relaxed night in with friends.
2. Blueberry mojito
Make the most of a seasonal glut with our five-minute blueberry mojito recipe. It requires just a handful of ingredients to turn a punnet of blueberries and a bottle of rum into a jugful of this mouth-watering party drink. Switching traditional limes for wedges of lemons balances out the sweetness of the fruit and adds a little extra zing to each sip.
3. Ginger & lemongrass mojito
Add a Vietnamese twist to the traditional recipe with this ginger & lemongrass mojito recipe. Perilla leaves add a light, minty flavour, with grassy notes of anise or licorice. A splash of delicate ginger and lemongrass cordial elevates this simple serve to something extra special. Pair it with an Asian menu for a refreshing accompaniment to your meal.
4. Mango & pineapple mojito
Give your tastebuds a dose of tropical flavours with our mango & pineapple mojito. Chunks of ripe mango, pineapple, wedges of lime and sugar are muddled together then mixed with rum, sparkling water and a glug of pineapple juice for an extra taste of the exotic.
5. Bergamot mojito
Venture out of your comfort zone and try our vibrant bergamot mojito. This elevated version of everyone's favourite tipple is perfect for impressing guests at your next dinner party. The perfumed zest and juice are combined with a sugar syrup for a smooth, citrussy mixture designed for sipping at leisure. A make-ahead granita keeps your drink chilled and full of texture.
