An authentic Cuban cocktail

In the heat of the summer sun, nothing refreshes quite like a mojito. The classic drink (which originates in Cuba) is the perfect combination of mint, sugar, club soda, lime and rum that promises to cool you off like a sweet breeze.

Here, we rely on GOYA® Lime Fruit Pulp – freshly-squeezed lemon juice that is quickly frozen to preserve its tang. Omit the rum for a cocktail that is kid-friendly. Or add a splash for a grown-up version.

Step 1

In cocktail shaker, or in tall glass, add mint leaves and sugar. Using a wooden pestle, muddle mint with sugar until mint is bruised.

Step 2

Add club soda, lime pulp and rum, if desired. Shake until combined.

Step 3

Evenly divide mojito among two tall glasses with ice. Serve immediately.

Tip by La Cocina Goya

No wooden pestle? No problem!

If you’re whipping up a batch of mojitos and your wooden pestle is missing in action, don’t panic! Instead, use your wooden spoon to muddle the mint. To do, flip the spoon and use the blunt end to firmly press the mint into the sugar until the herb turns dark green and releases its essential oils and fragrance.
