How To Make 5-Minute Easy Classic Mojito Recipe

Enjoy the fizzy and minty-fresh taste of the mojito you’re familiar with within the comforts of your home with our fail-proof, easy classic mojito recipe.

Preparation: 5 minutes
Total: 5 minutes



  • tspsugar,to taste
  • 4sprigsmint,about 5 to 6 inches long each
  • 2ozwhite rum
  • ¾ozlime juice
  • ice
  • club soda,such as Topo Chico, or sparkling water
  • 2dropsAngostura bitters,optional
  • 1lime,wheel, forgarnish


  1. In a sturdy, heavy-bottomed, tall cocktail glass, add the sugar and 3 sprigs of the mint.

  2. Muddle the mint with the sugar about 5 to 10 times, until the mint is very fragrant (not so much that the mint completely falls apart). 

  3. Pour in the rum and the lime juice, and gently stir a few times to help dissolve the sugar. Fill the glass with ice. 

  4. Fill the glass with club soda nearly to the top. Gently stir in a circular motion to combine, then use your spoon to drag some of the muddled mint higher up into the glass.

  5. Taste, and stir in more sugar if desired. Add 1 to two drops of bitters, if desired. 

  6. To garnish, place the lime wheel in the glass. Gently clap the remaining sprig of mint between your palms to release some oils, and tuck it into your glass, leaving the top exposed.

  7. Serve cold with a wide straw.
