Rachel’s Amazing Mojitos


My sister Rachel makes the most wonderful mojitos. Every time I go over to her house (don’t worry it’s like maybe twice a year, it’s not like we live next door to each other) I find a way to get her to make me one.

Or two.

But now that I have the recipe I can make them whenever I want!

Well, sorta. My lovely husband doesn’t drink at all so I don’t usually drink when it’s just the two of us. So I will probably keep these special for guests.

Rachel's Amazing Mojitos
Recipe By:
Serves: 4
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves, torn
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1¼ cups clear rum (chilled)
  • 1 33oz bottle limeade soda (see the photo below)
  • ice
  • juice of 2 limes
Preparation Instructions
  1. Combine the mint leaves, sugar and juice from one lime in a small bowl and muddle then together to release the flavors.
  2. Add the rum.
  3. Pour ¼ of the mixture into each glass, add a handful of ice, a little more lime juice and then fill to the top with the limeade.







This is the limeade Rachel uses, it’s from Safeway :)
