This Pineapple Mojito is a tropical spin on the classic mojito. Made with homemade pineapple rum and fresh pineapple, its bold flavor makes it a delightful cocktail for summer.
I can practically feel summer at my fingers tips. We’re so close. That’s why my mind has been on refreshing cocktail recipes like this Pineapple Mojito.
There’s almost nothing I love more than stopping work early in the summer to hang out in the sun with friends and endless cocktails. Throw in a pool and a few tasty summer appetizers, and it feels like heaven on earth to me.
What I especially love about this recipe is that it uses my Homemade Pineapple Rum which I taught you how to make here. This flavored rum makes all the difference as it gives the cocktail a super fresh and natural flavor.
You could even go so far as growing your own mint for this recipe. (If you need a little herb garden inspiration, check out my DIY vertical garden here.)
How Do you Make a Pineapple Mojito?
Making this cocktail is simple. In a highball glass, muddle together the lime juice, mint, and simple syrup. (This is how most mojito recipes start.) Then, add a couple freshly cut pineapple wedges and lightly muddle again to crush the pineapple.
Next, add your pineapple-infused rum and a few ice cubes. Top with club soda and stir. That’s it.
All that’s left to do is to pull up a lounge chair, grab your sunglasses, sit back, and enjoy! Cheers!
