What goes into the Strawberry & Raspberry mojito cocktail?
To make these mojitos, you will need:
- 4-6 fresh mint leaves. These will get muddled right in the glass, when preparing the cocktails.
- 2 diced fresh strawberries. You can also use a handful of raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries, or a combo of your choosing. I prefer fresh fruit for this recipe, as it also doubles as a garnish. If you have frozen berries on hand, they will work too!
- 3 oz Raspberry rum, or other preferred berry flavored rum, or silver rum.
- The juice of half a lime.
- 1 oz simple syrup. You can make your own, or purchase it. This is a basic simple syrup recipe I have, with fall flavors. If you omit the spices, you have classic simple syrup!
- Club soda, to top off the mojitos.
Best white rum for mojitos
While you could use a classic white rum for this Raspberry and Strawberry Mojito Cocktail, I like the extra berry flavor you get from using a raspberry flavored rum. Some other great candidates are Bacardi Dragonberry or Strawberry Rum. Whatever rum you use, make sure it's a silver or white rum, for best results.
What is a Mojito?
The mojito is a classic cocktail, originating in Cuba. A minty drink- it is light, effervescent, refreshing, and a touch sweet.
A traditional mojito is made with white rum, fresh lime, fresh mint leaves, sugar (or simple syrup), and club soda (or sparking water).
Muddling the mint
Muddling the fresh mint in each cocktail gently releases the flavor of the mint into the cocktail, and gives the mojito it’s fresh and refreshing flavor. If you don’t have a cocktail muddler, you can use the back of a wooden spoon. Be careful to be gentle, and not over-muddle, or you could end up with a bitter cocktail. You want to press the leaves gently, to release their flavor, rather than bruise and pulverize them.
What other berries could I use?
Instead of fresh strawberries, or in addition to, you could use fresh raspberries, blackberries or blueberries for this Raspberry and Strawberry mojito cocktail. A mix of berries is great, too!

What's the best mint for mojitos?
Fresh peppermint or spearmint give the best flavor to this cocktail. You'll want to use just the leaves, stems removed, for this recipe. If you like an extra minty, feel free to add additional mint leaves to taste when muddling!
