Servings 1


  • 1 tablespoon lime juice or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup or honey or to taste
  • 10-12 mint leaves
  • ½ lime sliced
  • Ice as required
  • Club soda sprite , sparkling water or ginger ale (as required)
  • Muddler Or large wooden spoon and glass of choice


  • In a tall serving glass add the lime juice, simple syrup, half of the lime slices and mint leaves and muddle/crush using the muddler (or use back of the large wooden spoon).
  • Muddle only for 10 seconds or so such that the mint releases its essential oils.
  • Don't over do it as it will make the mint taste bitter and your drink may taste unpleasant.
  • Now fill your glass with ice and top with your choice of bubbling drink like club soda, sparkling water, sprite or ginger ale.
  • Garnish with lemon slices and mint leaves and serve immediately.


  • Adjust the sweetness and tartness to your liking.
  • The choice of drink (Club soda, sprite , sparkling water or ginger ale) you use will change the way your Mojito tastes. But all these are great combinations and finally comes down to what you like and have available.
