Cuban Mojito Recipe

It’s not summer yet, but it sure feels like it here in Florida. I’m not sure if there is a cocktail that better defines sunny days than Cuba’s classic mojito! The mint and the lime paired with rum and club soda are so refreshing. I can tell that I am going to love sipping on cocktails this summer in our screened-in back porch. In fact, maybe I should make Cocktail Tuesdays a weekly tradition this season at Fab Fatale!

Classic Cuban Mojito

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 Glass

Classic Cuban Mojito


  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 lime (cut into thirds)
  • Ice
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup (equal amounts sugar and water heated until sugar dissolves, cooled)
  • 1.5 ounces light rum
  • Club Soda
  • Lime wedge and mint sprig, for garnish


  1. Muddle at the bottom of each glass, 10 mint leaves and 3 lime wedges. Sprinkle a bit of sugar in the bottom of the glass because the abrasive texture will release the mint oil from the leaves.
  2. Fill each glass with ice, top with simple syrup, rum, and then club soda and give a good stir with a long spoon. Garnish with a lime wedge and a sprig of mint.
