Mojitos just have a few simple ingredients: Light rum, mint and lime juice. Add in your favorite flavors for new twists on the classic. It’s a great cocktail to make for any occasion. We use light Bacardi Rum for our mojitos.
How to Make Cucumber Mojitos:
- In a collins glass, add fresh mint leaves, a slice of cucumber and lime juice. Muddle together with a cocktail spoon or the end of a wooden spoon. Muddling is just smashing, this will get the oils from the mint leaves and the juice from the cucumber to mix with the lime juice creating amazing flavor in the cocktails.
- Add rum and simple syrup. Fill the glass with ice and top with Sprite, mix with a cocktail spoon.
- Add a few slices of cucumber, lime and garnish with mint.
