Here’s all you will need to make a tasty Thermomix mojito. Apart from rum, all of these are super cheap & easy to find.
Sugar - You can use practically any sugar. I recommend using LIGHT sugars to keep the drink looking clear & see-through.
Lime - You’ll need whole limes for maximum flavour. Save some extra limes to use as decoration.
Mint - Fresh mint leaves will be used to infuse it with flavour.
Ice - there’s no refreshing cocktail without some ice!
Soda water / fizzy water - Unsweetened fizzy water is a crucial ingredient for this mojito. It provides the perfect balance.
Rum - White rum will bring the best results. Omit rum if you’re making a mocktail.
TIP - If you are missing any ingredients I’ve prepared a list of alternatives below.
- Glasses for serving
- Sharp knife
- Long spoons or straws
TIP - This is a super quick overview of how to STYLE your mojito. Read the exact measurements & instructions at the bottom of this page.
- Add ice cubes to a tall glass.
- Pour in your mojito directly from the Thermomix.
- Use some thin lime wedges to decorate the rim of the glass. Throw some lime into the drink too.
- Rub a few mint leaves between your fingers. Cut them up small and add them to the drink as a final touch.
PS - I always love picking a very small bunch of tiny mint leaves and gently placing it on top of the drink.
- Use a LARGE, tall glass for serving
- Taste and adjust - Just like many cocktails, mojitos are all about personal preference. If you’re not fully satisfied with the base recipes, make sure to tune it to your own taste.
- If you do customise it, remember the key is balance - you should be able to taste each element
- Crushed ice is best, but you can serve it with any ice - no need to overthink it
- Choose a good rum - it will make all the difference
- Avoid flavoured rums
- Avoid dark sugars at all costs - this will turn your drink murky.
- If you prefer your cocktail completely clear, use the Thermomix strainer to strain it before pouring into the glasses.
Fun fact - Mojito is one of the oldest mixed drinks in the world. It's thought to be over 500 years old.
There are a lot of ‘rules’ when it comes to cocktail making. Sometimes they are meant to be broken and other times they’re just personal preferences. I recommend finding out what works best for YOU and sticking to that.
This is the perfect drink for summer parties, brunch gatherings, bridal showers, or really any other social gathering (especially in the summer).
The rum that you would drink straight. I recommend going for rums in the middle price bracket. Cheap ones might leave you disappointed, but really expensive ones won’t necessarily justify the price.
Don’t have a certain ingredient?
- You can use vodka, tequila or gin to substitute rum.
- It’s not ideal, but you can use lemon instead of lime.
- Make it non-alcoholic by skipping rum altogether.
- If you don’t have sugar, you can use liquid sweeteners (like agave syrup) - but this will colour your drink a little.
We call love a classic mojito, but what’s the hurt in switching things up a little?
Don't miss some of my favourite variations:
- Add berries for a fun & colourful twist (I love adding raspberries!).
- Add tropical fruits like mango, pineapple & coconut.
- You can use ginger ale instead of soda water for a bolder twist of flavours.
- Cranberry mojito is IDEAL for Christmas.
- Spicy jalapeño mojito is an exciting alternative too.
