Sometimes you just need a big batch of mojitos and this mojito pitcher recipe is there for you! This blog post is sponsored by Princess.
Have you ever traveled with an all-inclusive package that includes both food and alcohol?
My husband’s first time doing this was a few years ago and he enjoyed it SO much. He tends to stress about the financial aspect of travel and it was such a huge burden off of him.
Everything was paid for up front and he could just sit back, relax, and drink mojitos for breakfast. <— I’m kidding about that last part. He drank coffee martinis most mornings. The man has standards. 😉
I ate pastries and saved the alcohol for later in the day. Haha.
Princess recently invited us on a cruise with them in exchange for sharing about it here. While we were onboard, I was excited to see that they offer drink packages.
Princess includes food and room service when you book a cabin, but alcoholic beverages cost extra. With their beverage package, you don’t have to worry about it. It’s a great way to save money if you enjoy a good cocktail.
Lounging by their pool with a mojito in hand was the perfect way to spend a sea day.
Of course, any of the Top 10 Masterpiece Cocktails are a win!
My husband was a big fan of their mojitos, so I made this mojito pitcher recipe for him and some friends after we got home from the trip.
What’s in a mojito:
- Fresh mint leaves
- Fresh lime
- Sugar or simple syrup
- Club soda
My husband loves his mojitos with cucumber added to the mixture. They’re extra refreshing.
You can add in other fresh fruits as well, such as strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. Get creative with your mojito recipe!
How to make a mojito:
We’re making a mojito pitcher recipe, so this will be enough to fill a pitcher. This recipe should serve 8.
You’ll start by adding plenty of fresh mint leaves to a pitcher along with some sugar and lime wedges. Muddle them together.
Muddling just means crushing the leaves of the mint with the sugar and fruit. Here’s a great cocktail muddler (affiliate link). Do this just until you smell the mint. Don’t over muddle your mint or things will start to taste funky.
Next, you’ll just pour the club soda and rum over the top and give it a quick stir.
Serve these mojitos over plenty of ice and garnish with a sprig of mint, if desired.
Enjoy these mojitos out by the pool or while planning your next Princess cruise!
