Dark Mojito

A warm and satisfying twist on the mojito

Thanks to Rum Therapy, here's another one to add to your mojito recipe files: a Dark Mojito. It's truly just a slight variation on both the perfect mojito and a dirty mojito, and in our opinion, it tastes the rummiest of the three! Use a dark rum with a taste that you find pleasant, as its flavor will rise above the milder tastes of mint and sugar.

  • 8 mint leaves
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 0.5 lime
  • 1 Dash of club soda

Mojito Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Mojito Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
