Ingredients

This easy Mango Mojito recipe calls for a handful of ingredients that are easily available. Let’s take a deep look at each ingredient:

  • Mangoes: Fresh, ripe, and juicy mangoes are the star of the show. They provide the luscious and tropical flavor to this Mango Mojito drink recipe. So when you are making mango mojito, make sure that you choose the mangoes that are sweet and fragrant. The ones with vibrant orange-yellow flesh work the best. I have used freshly chopped mangoes and homemade mango puree in this recipe. You can also freeze mango chunks or store-bought mango puree in this recipe.

  • Fresh Mint Leaves: Mint leaves are the backbone of any mojito recipe. They add a refreshing and cooling element to the classic and cooling drink. This fresh herb adds a hint of freshness and complements beautifully well the sweet mango flavors.

  • Lime: You will need some fresh lime pieces to bring a tangy and citrusy punch to this Mojito. Lime juice balances the sweetness of the mangoes and adds a zesty twist. I have used freshly diced lime and lime wedge here, but if you don’t have fresh lime then feel free to use lemon or bottled lime juice.

  • Simple syrup: To sweeten this mojito and enhance the natural sweetness of the mangoes, I have added simple syrup. You can also use sugar, honey, or agave here to create a well-balanced flavor. Feel free to adjust the quantity of sweetener according to your taste preferences.

  • Rum (optional): Since I have made mango mojito cocktails, I have added a shot of rum to this recipe. But if you prefer a non-alcoholic version of the Mango Mojito, then you can simply replace the alcohol with plain or sparkling water. You can also swap rum with vodka in this recipe. 

  • Ice Cubes: They play a crucial role in this mojito recipe because they keep the Mango Mojito refreshing and chilled. They help maintain a chilled temperature while diluting the flavors slightly.

  • Club Soda or Sparkling Water: Club soda or sparkling water adds a delightful fizz to the Mango Mojito, making it even more refreshing. The bubbles provide a light and sparkling texture to the drink.

Spicy Mojito

If you like spicy flavors, then you can try a spicy infusion. For a touch of heat, add a slice of chili or jalapeno into the drink and muddle the chili along with the lime to infuse the Mango Mojito recipe with a spicy kick.

Frozen Mojito

If you are into frosty treats, then you can try making frozen mango mojito by blending the ripe frozen mangoes with ice cubes to create a frozen delight. This frozen version is perfect for scorching summer days when you crave a refreshing beverage and a slushy.

Virgin Mango Mojito

Snacks that go well with mango mojito are Samosa Roll, Aloo Pakora, Almond Flour Crackers, Masala Peanuts, Samosa Pinwheels, or Gobi Manchurian.

Storage Suggestions

The Mango Mojito tastes best when enjoyed fresh and immediately after preparation for its vibrant flavors. However, if you are making it for a gathering or want to prepare the mixture in advance, then it is advised to make the mango mojito in a large pitcher (avoid adding ice cubes and club soda). It stays fresh for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. 

Cover it tightly with plastic wrap or a lid and place the pitcher in the refrigerator to keep it chilled until ready to serve.

When you want to serve, add ice cubes to the serving glass. Before serving stored Mango Mojito, give it a quick stir to distribute any settled flavors. Pour mango mojito and top with club soda.

When storing, keep in mind that the mint leaves may wilt, so it’s recommended to remove them before refrigeration if you plan to store the mixture for 4-5 days.
