Mojito Recipes: A Fresh Way to Make Your Summer Night
Mix it up on your summer nights with refreshing mojito recipes to pass. Whether you’re enjoying your time alone or surrounded by friends, adding a little flavor to a fresh, chilled beverage makes for a fun summer evening.
The traditional mojito recipe may vary slightly, but essentially contains a mix of fresh mint and citrus tang to curb the sweetness. To take the sweet and citrus mix one step beyond, browse our Classic and Sugar-Free fruit flavors for the perfect pairing.
We recommend experimenting with Strawberry, Watermelon, Peach or Orange to start. Or mix Mango and Coconut for a tasty tropical combination. If you’re looking to go sugar-free, replace the sugar in the mix with your favorite sweetener and DaVinci Gourmet Sugar Free Syrup.
Now let’s get to the good stuff:
