Pineapple Mint Mojito is a must-try beverage to experience a burst of tropical flavors filled with sweetness, tanginess, and a minty hint of rum.

This is my go-to drink for summer barbeques or unwinding after a long busy-mom day.

No doubt, this pineapple mojito recipe is just as refreshing as peach mojitos, and it pairs exceptionally well with the classic summer favorite, fruit berry salad.

When it’s hot outside, boozy pineapple drinks always hit the spot. Let’s go chilling!

Mojito VS Margarita

Mojitos and margaritas are two of the most popular zesty cocktails at bars and parties, but they’re very distinct from each other. Mojitos get their alcoholic boost from white rum, while margaritas, on the other hand, get their booziness from tequila. 

Margaritas typically contain more alcohol content than mojitos. So, the latter is better if you want a more laid-back alcoholic drink.

❤️ Why You’ll Love This Recipe

Apart from its feel-good factor, there’s so much to love about pineapple mint mojito. I can probably name a dozen, but I’ll only list a few, as a sip of this drink can tell you the rest of them. 

  • It’s an Instagram-approved aesthetic cocktail. With its vibrant colors and refreshing garnish, it’ll be very hard to get a bad photo of this mojito. 
  • You’ll enjoy a very refreshing summer sipper. Only a few fruits compare to lime and pineapple when it comes to representing the tropical freshness, so every sip of this cocktail will make you escape the summer heat. 
  • It’s super easy and takes only 2 minutes to make. Since you don’t need to use a large cocktail shaker or do some extra straining for this recipe, you can set up a fun activity of letting guests make their own cocktails from scratch as well! 

If you’re making cocktails, you should absolutely not miss out on serving margarita cookies. This dessert is boozy and minty, just like this pineapple mint mojito.

🥘 Ingredients

You don’t need fancy fruits and sweeteners to prepare incredibly refreshing mojitos. Just prepare these common ingredients, and your cocktail will be ready to sip in minutes.

  • Fresh pineapple chunks: This is the star ingredient for this recipe. If you can’t find fresh pineapples, you can use canned pineapple chunks instead. 
  • Lime: The fresher it is, the better. The lime juice will be the main contributor to the zesty element of this mojito, balancing the sweetness of pineapple. 
  • Fresh mint leaves: Mint is synonymous with freshness, so don’t miss this ingredient to give your cocktail that true summer getaway aroma and taste. 
  • Ice cubes: Of course, mojitos are best served with plenty of ice, so make sure you’ve got enough of it in your freezer. 
  • White rum: Feel free to choose one from the brand of your liking. 
  • Simple syrup: Both store-bought and homemade simple syrup will work exceptionally well for this drink. 
  • Soda water: Also known as club soda or sparkling water, this ingredient will give your cocktail a bubbly fizz that makes the drink more enjoyable.

🔀 Substitutions

Lime: If you can’t find fresh limes, you can opt for bottled lime juice or lemon instead. Just note that if you’re using lime juice, you’d have less garnish in your glass, while lemon, on the other hand, can alter the flavor of the drink. 

Simple syrup: Luckily, there are plenty of alternatives for simple syrup. But for this recipe, I highly recommend using agave nectar if you don’t have simple syrup and can’t make it.

🌈 Variations / Options / Add-Ins

Whether you’ve got kids around or simply want to enhance this cocktail to better suit your preferences, these variation recommendations are definitely worth it. 

  • Kid-friendly: Skip the rum and put an extra splash of club soda with pineapple juice to create a mocktail that kids absolutely love. When making this alternative, don’t forget to garnish the rim of the glass with pineapples to make it just as fancy as the original. 
  • Tropical fruits: Incorporate another tropical fruit, such as strawberry or coconut, into the ingredients for a unique tropical fruit-combo approach to this recipe. 
  • Frozen Mojito: You can put all of the ingredients with crushed ice into the blender for a frozen mojito. This alternative is even more slushy and refreshing, making it great for those extra hot summer afternoons. 

If you love the frozen mojito variation, you’ll also fall in love with this classic frozen margarita recipe.

🥄 Equipment Needed / Helpful Tools

The secret to making this cocktail in 2 minutes or less lies in the tools below. 

  • Muddler: You’ll need this to extract the flavors from your fruits and mint. 
  • Highball glass: Using a tall glass for this drink is necessary so that it can hold the volume of this recipe.
  • Jigger: This is handy in measuring the ounces of your rum and simple syrup. 
  • Bar spoon: Stirring is so much easier if you have a long bar spoon. An alternative to this would be a regular spoon. 

🔪 How to Make Pineapple Mint Mojito

Ready to get boozy? Follow these very simple steps, and your mojito will be ready in less than 3 minutes! 

Step 1: Muddle fruits and mint

Place your prepared mint, lime slices, and fresh pineapple chunks into your glass. Then, muddle them for at least 30 seconds so you can extract as much flavor and aroma as possible. 

If you don’t want to risk breaking your glass, you can do this process in a small bowl instead. Just transfer the mixture to the glass afterward. 

Step 2: Add ice

How much you should add really depends on how tall your glass is. A safe starting point for your first drink would be 3 ice cubes. If there’s still space left at the top of the glass after you’ve finished adding the rest of the liquids, add more ice cubes to your next cocktail. 

Step 3: Add the liquids 

Add the rum, simple syrup, and soda water to the glass.

Step 4: Stir and garnish 

Using the bar spoon, carefully stir the drink and garnish it using a couple of pieces of pineapple. For a fancier presentation, you can also add a chunk of pineapple and mint leaf on the rim of each glass. 

Lime wedges also work as a great garnish, visual-wise, but many people don’t eat them, so if I have pineapple chunks, I opt for those instead.

🍽️ Serving Suggestions

I love serving this pineapple mint mojito alongside strawberry margarita cupcakes and kiwi fruit salad.

❓ Recipe FAQs

Can I store this drink in the fridge?

Unfortunately, it’s not recommended to store Pineapple Mint Mojito in the fridge. As this cocktail contains soda, the carbonation diminishes over time in the fridge, so it’s best to consume this drink immediately.

Can I use a different rum for this recipe?

Yes, you can. Just note that using a different rum, such as dark rum or coconut rum, will alter the original flavor of this cocktail slightly.

How long should I wait before driving after drinking mojito?

You should wait at least two hours after consuming a glass of mojito before you drive. It takes approximately one and a half hours for an average person to metabolize the alcohol from 2 ounces of white rum, so 2 hours is a safe waiting time.
