Fruit Mojitos Four Ways
Fruit Mojitos are so easy to make, they are also pretty and refreshing, the perfect summer drink. Check them here in four flavors: Raspberry, Blackberry, Pineapple, and Watermelon.
Fruit Mojitos are the perfect summer drink. They are easy to make, pretty, refreshing and with endless flavor possibilities. I am going to share with you my favorite four Fruit Mojitos using fresh summer fruit.
I make these cocktails all summer long and you can easily transform them in mocktails by skipping the alcohol. Also, I love my mojitos with lemon juice instead of lime but feel free to substitute.
What is simple syrup?
Simple syrup is an ingredient used in many cocktails. Also, it is very easy to make. First, you will need 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of water, and optional ingredients are the juice of one lemon and 1 cup mint leaves.
Then, in a medium saucepan combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Allow cooling. Discard mint leaves.
A refreshing raspberry mojito, made with fresh raspberries is a delicious combo of sweet and tart. Very easy to make with cane sugar, or you can use Simple Syrup.
Also, you can skip the alcohol and make a virgin version that is very tasty. Taste your raspberries, make sure you are using sweet, ripe fruit for the cocktail to taste sweet.
For extra raspberry flavor I used a combination of muddles raspberries plus some raspberry-flavored rum. Raspberry vodka would also work well.
Note: Raspberries do have lots of little seeds and if it bothers you to have them in your drink, you can press the raspberries through a fine-meshed sieve and only use the juice in your drink.
The tropical taste of this mojito will make you feel on vacation. Very easy to make with cane sugar, or you can use Simple Syrup. You can skip the alcohol and make a virgin version by adding pineapple juice. Make sure you use a ripe pineapple that is easy to muddle.
It’s basically perfect for summer in general if you’re a mojito lover. Whether it’s lounging by the pool or evening porch sitting, this is nothing short of delicious. The best part is that this cocktail comes together in just 5 minutes
The pineapple mojito is a fruity spin on the Classic Mojito, a classic cocktail invented in Havana, Cuba. The origins of the drink stem back hundreds of years, but it took off in America in the 1930’s when Ernest Hemingway helped to popularize the modern version.
The pineapple spin simply adds pineapple juice to the classic ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need for this cocktail:
- Fresh mint
- Lime juice
- Simple syrup
- White rum
- Soda water
- Pineapple juice
There is no summer without watermelon. For this Fruit, Mojito makes sure you blend well the watermelon and use a mesh strainer when pouring it into glasses. In addition, I don’t add extra sugar to this one, as the watermelon is sweet enough.
Feel free to add simple syrup if you like it sweeter. Especially tasty when made with Perrier Watermelon sparkling natural waterIt is super simple to prepare. Muddle a few pieces of watermelon with fresh mint leaves and you are set! And for this non-alcoholic drink, I combined this muddled watermelon with lime juice and sparkling apple cider. However, you can use rum if you want to make it a traditional alcoholic mojito drink
Blackberry Mojito is how I’m kicking off all the spring things this year. The tart blackberries give this classic minty cocktail a refreshing, fruity twist that’s perfect for sippin’ on patios in the sun
Whenever berries are in season, I always find myself gravitating towards to blackberry.
I feel like it’s not the jock of the berries, like say strawberry (with the cheerleaders being the blueberries of course). However this dark berry has some of the sweetest flavor and this year, while Baby-cakes inhales them by the handful, I steal a few for myself and happy hour.
The day that I made this cocktail for the first time, the Man and I were spending our first spring in the townhome and I was secluding myself upstairs to avoid the siren song of the summer weather while I had to work.
I mean, these blackberry mojitos are SO patio drinking kind of drinks. The tart berries, the fresh mint, and the slight carbonation make it refreshing and oh-so flavorful. With blackberries being in season starting in June and running through October, you can make the most of all the warm afternoons with this simple combination!
