🔍 FAQs

I can’t find fresh mint, what should I do?

If you love mojitos, plant a pot of mint outside your back door.  It grows like a weed just about anywhere and comes back every year.

Can I use frozen raspberries?

Fresh or frozen raspberries are fine, but allow frozen ones to soften at room temperature for a few minutes to make them easier to muddle.

What alcohol is best for mojitos?

Rum is what you will typically see in a mojito. Some great options are Bacardi, Appleton, Havana Club, and Crazan. But honestly, just pick your favorite and you’ll be good to go.

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • Raspberries do have small seeds and if that is something you don’t prefer then you can easily press the raspberries through a fine-mesh strainer.
  • Use a citrus juicer to juice your lime. This will save your fingers!
  • When muddling, be sure to thoroughly crush the mint leaves to release their flavor.
  • Use a dry rum instead of a flavored rum. Use the flavor from the fruit and mint. You’ll be grateful
