Are Mojitos alcoholic?
Yes, mojitos are alcoholic as they contain rum.
Check out our passion fruit mojito, it’s so good!
If you are looking for a non alcoholic mojito mocktail then we have one coming soon!
What alcohol is best for mojitos?
The best alcohol to use for mojitos is white rum.
Use a white rum that you prefer, it doesn’t need to be super expensive, so don’t break the bank.
How many shots are there in a mojito?
In our raspberry mojitos, there is one 50ml shot, but you can easily reduce this if you want to make it less alcoholic.
Fresh raspberries or frozen?
You really need fresh raspberries to muddle your cocktails because you need to release the juices to make the base of your drink.
However, you could use frozen raspberries if you let them defrost thoroughly before using them.
What’s the best glass to make a mojito in?
The best glass to use to make your raspberry mojitos in is a highball glass.
How do you muddle a mojito?
Muddling your raspberry mojitos isn’t as difficult as you may think.
All you need to do is press down on the ingredients and twist with the muddler.
If you don’t have a muddler then take a look at our tips further down.
Sugar syrup vs granulated sugar
We use granulated sugar for a specific reason, it helps to muddle your raspberry mojito ingredients.
The grains help to gently break down the ingredients, so it’s not just for the sugar that we use it.
You can use sugar syrup instead, but you won’t get quite as good a muddle and you would need to add it after the white rum.
Can I make this ahead?
We wouldn’t recommend that you make this ahead.
Fresh mint leaves don’t last well if they’ve been crushed, it’ll go brown and be less than appealing.
Also, the club soda water will go flat.
It’s best to make your raspberry mojitos just before you serve them, so they are beautifully fresh.
Could I make a pitcher of this?
Just muddle and mix your raspberry mojitos in a pitcher and adjust the servings in our recipe card to suit the size of your pitcher.
What should I garnish it with?
The classic mojito garnish is a sprig of fresh mint leaves, which is what we’d recommend.
You can use a straw and if you do, we recommend that you place the straw next to the mint so that you have the aroma of mint when you drink your cocktail.
Recipe notes and tips
- If you don’t have a cocktail muddler, then don’t worry, simply use the handle of a wooden spoon. You can use a regular spoon, but just be careful not to press too hard or you could break your glass and cut yourself.
