A mojito is a classic cocktail that’s perfect for parties, BBQs and gatherings. It's time to learn how to make one!

What's In A Mojito? 

A mojito is a mix of lime, white rum, fresh mint and sugar, all topped off with soda water for a refreshing drink that evokes holidays and time at the beach in the sunshine. 

How To Make A Mojito

Mojitos are easy to make – you just need the right tools for the job! With a muddler and a glass, you can make one of the most delicious and well-known cocktails around.

A muddler is a stick-like tool used by bartenders to extract more flavour out of the ingredients, in a similar way that you would use a pestle and mortar. With a muddler, you can press down on the mint leaves to infuse your lime, rum and soda water with a more refreshing taste.
