Island Eats, Mojito

Welcome to Island Eats, the place where you can find yummy recipes every Sunday. This week we have a Mojito Cocktail. Mix this classic cocktail for a party using fresh mint, white rum, sugar, zesty lime and cooling soda water. Play with the quantities to suit your taste.

Prep: 5 Minutes
Makes: 1


Juice of 1 Lime
1 tsp Granulated Sugar
Small handful of Mint leaves, plus extra to serve
60ml White Rum
Soda Water


  1. Mix together the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves in a small jug, crushing the mint as you go – you can use the end of a rolling pin for this. Pour into a tall glass and add a handful of ice.
  2. Pour over the rum, stirring with a long-handled spoon. Top up with soda water, garnish with mint and serve.
