  • ½ cup mango puree (about 1 mango)
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice (1 lime)
  • 2 teaspoon honey
  • 3 oz light rum
  • 6-8 ice cubes, crushed
  • ¾ cup club soda
  • lime wedges, mango cubes and mint leaves for garnish


  • Add fresh mango to food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Set aside.
  • Place mint leaves, lime juice, honey and rum to a cocktail shaker. Use a muddler to gently muddle the mint leaves, but don't muddle too much or you'll break up the leaves.
  • Add the mango puree and mix until combined. Fill two glasses ⅔ of the way full with the mango mixture and ice.
  • Top with club soda. Add extra mint leaves, mango cubes and lime for garnish.


  • If you don't have fresh mango, frozen mango will work fine.
  • Do not over muddle the mint or you will turn the taste bitter.
  • Don't overdo it with the mint. A little goes a long way. 10 leaves is enough for 2 drinks.
  • Use honey instead of simple syrup. It may not be traditional but takes less work and adds additional flavor.
  • Use light rum when making the mojito. Gold or dark rum can muddy the flavor.
  • Used crushed ice which will make the mojito colder quicker.
