We make this MOJITO PITCHER RECIPE all summer long! Perfect for serving a crowd! You’ll love these slightly sweet, minty, refreshing mojitos and how easy they are to make – no simple syrup needed!
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. 😉
We like to extend the vacation vibes to when we get home, so I immediately set out to make the perfect mojito pitcher recipe.
A cocktail pitcher is the perfect way to serve a crowd or just save yourself from work. No one likes making up a million single batches of a drink, so just make one big version and serve it up in a pitcher!
Limes– You’ll want a lot of fresh limes for this drink.
Mint Leaves – Find these in the produce section of the grocery store.
Rum – Use a good clear rum for making this mixed drink. Some popular options are Bacardi Silver and Captain Morgan white rum. I’ll let you decide what the best rum is for mojitos!

Muddle: We’re making a mint mojito pitcher recipe, so this will be enough to fill a pitcher. This recipe should serve 8, unless you like bigger portions. 😉
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! Do this just until you smell the mint. Don’t over muddle your mint or things will start to taste funky.
Mojito Mix: Finally you can pour the club soda and your preferred brand of white rum right into the pitcher. Give it a quick stir and serve these mojitos over plenty of ice and garnish with a sprig of mint, if desired.
A nice refreshing mojito drink is best enjoyed out by the pool or on the beach!
A mojito is a very popular cocktail that was born in Cuba and generally contains the same simple ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint! But like most drinks there are endless variations. See below for some suggestions on how you might modify this drink.
Mostly it comes down to the type of barrel or drum they are aged in. The darker rum has a bolder flavor from being aged in charred oak barrels. The white rum has a lighter taste and is better suited for making mixed drinks.
Modify your mojito!
- Coconut Mojito – This one is real is easy, just use coconut rum!
- Strawberry Mojito – As the name implies, this mojito uses fresh strawberries. You’ll want to keep the mint and the lime, just add a handful of strawberries in before muddling!
- Cucumber Mojito – My husband’s favorite! Add sliced cucumbers.
- Raspberry Mojito – Same as above, just muddle in fresh raspberries!
