Pineapple Ginger Mojito – The perfect easy and refreshing cocktail made with pineapple juice, ginger liqueur, white rum and club soda!
First, let’s talk about traditional mojitos! Mojitos are a traditional Cuban highball cocktail. They typically consist of white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint.
For some reason, plain mojitos are just “okay” to me. I’m always adding little twists and tweaks to cocktails, and the mojito is the perfect drink to play around with! 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.
Garnish your Pineapple Mojito
You know I’m all about a good garnish, and pineapple rings are an easy one for these mojitos. You can also garnish these pineapple mojitos with a pineapple wedge or lime wedge too.
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. Spearmint is the mint variety most commonly used in mojitos, but you could try any mint variety you have on hand!
Which Rum is Best for Pineapple Ginger Mojitos?
I prefer a high quality white rum. Now, you could get fancy and try a spiced rum, but it might not be ideal for this flavored mojito. If you love to try new things and play around in the kitchen, you could certainly try it out! If you would rather stick with the traditional rum, choose a white rum like Bacardi Silver, Cruzan White Rum, etc.
Here’s a little “making of” video for this mojito recipe 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!
