Mojito Recipe (with Video!)

The classic mojito recipe is a rum cocktail made from five simple ingredients. We're keeping the sugar low in this version and swapping granulated sugar (or simple syrup) for honey. Watch the video above to see how quickly it comes together!

  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • club soda


  • Add the mint leaves, honey and lime juice to a highball or collins glass. Use a muddler to gently muddle the mint leaves, but don't muddle too much as you don't want to break the leaves up.
  • Pour in the rum, then fill the glass 2/3 of the way full with ice.
  • Top it off with club soda, add a sprig of fresh mint, add a straw and enjoy.



  • I use one teaspoon of honey in this recipe (a traditional mojito calls for about 2 teaspoons of sugar) - so half the sugar. But you can use more or less depending on how sweet you like your cocktails.
  • The larger end of a cocktail jigger can range from 1.5-2 ounces. This one I use is 2 ounces.
  • I love this muddler + cocktail spoon combination as it saves space in your kitchen.
  • I also recommend these stainless steel straws (shown above) or glass straws.
