Hi friends! As we head into the warmer months, I wanted to share my pineapple ginger mojito with you because what better way to enjoy a little Vitamin D than with a glass of this icy beverage in hand? Am I right?
For some reason, plain mojitos just don’t do it for me. I’m always adding little twists and tweaks to cocktails. The mojito is the perfect drink to tweak. The refreshing mint is such a great base for adding so many fruity flavors. You can whip up a pitcher of these pineapple ginger mojitos for your summer parties, and I can assure you that your friends will be asking for the recipe! They’re not overly “girly” by any means but have just enough sweetness to satisfy the fruity lovers. Pop in a cute umbrella and pretend you’re on vacay.
You know I’m all about a good garnish, and pineapple rings are an easy one for these mojitos. You can certainly garnish with a pineapple wedge too. Whatever your heart desires. Mint is of course necessary seeing as it is still a mojito. Thankfully, despite the fact that I have a black thumb, mint grows easily and I have hoards of it in my yard.
Here’s a little “making of” video so you can get a feel for how this cocktail comes together. It’s very easy! And if you’re nervous about measuring everything exactly, don’t be! Adjust the ratios to fit your favorite flavors. There’s no right or wrong here. You could even swap in a different fruit such as lemon or even strawberry! I’m also quite a fan of peach-flavored cocktails like this Georgia Peach Smash so if you love peach, don’t miss that one!
- 2 ounces ginger liqueur such as Domaine de Canton
- 2 ounces pineapple juice
- 1/2 ounce white rum
- splash of club soda
- fresh mint and pineapple for garnishing
Muddle fresh mint and pineapple wedge. Add in ginger liqueur, pineapple juice and white rum. Add ice, club soda, and stir to combine. Garnish with pineapple wedge and fresh mint.
I hope you’ll try this pineapple ginger mojito! If you do, tag me so I can see your drink. Sip sip hooray!
