Frozen Mojito

When the summer heat is is at sky high levels, here’s a drink that will cool you to your core: the Frozen Mojito! The Classic Mojito is one of our top greatest cocktails of all time, and we’ve made just about every fruity variation on the theme. But this frozen spin…well, it made our heads turn! It’s icy and outrageously refreshing: like someone amped up the dial on the mint volume. It immediately jumped to the top of our must-make frozen cocktails list. Here’s how to make it!

What’s in a Frozen Mojito?

This frozen mojito is an icy spin on the Mojito, a classic cocktail invented in Havana, Cuba. Some say the origins of this drink go all the way back to the 1500’s with an early combination of lime, sugar, and rum used as medicine. The modern version of got popular in the 1930’s, when writer Ernest Hemingway fell in love with the drink.

The Frozen Mojito uses all the same ingredients as a classic Mojito, except it substitutes ice for soda water. Instead of diluting the drink with bubbles, it turns it into a frozen slushie. Here’s what you’ll need for a Frozen Mojito:

How to make a Frozen Mojito

The best part about this Frozen Mojito? It requires no advanced planning whatsoever. You can make it on the spot! This is unique because many frozen cocktails need time to freeze over night, like with this Frozen Margarita or Frozen Sangria. But with the Mojito, you can whip one up right away. Here’s what to do:

  • Add ½ cup white rum, ¼ cup each lime juice and simple syrup, 1 handful mint leaves, and 2 cups ice to a blender.
  • Blend until smooth! Serve immediately garnished with a lime wedge.

The glasses to use

You can use many different shapes of glasses for serving a Frozen Mojito. Here we served it in a non-standard presentation with a stemmed cocktail glass, just for fun! A Mojito is often served in a low-ball or high-ball glass, so that works as well. Another option is a Hurricane glass, which is often used for tropical drinks.

Making Mojitos for a crowd

Want to increase the serving size? No problem! One of the great things about blender cocktails is that they’re easy to make multiple servings. Just make double the recipe for 4 servings, or quadruple it for 8. Use the 2x button in the recipe below for an easy way to double the ingredients.
