The pineapple mojito recipe is a tropical twist on the standard Mojito, originating in Havana, Cuba. The traditional Mojito is one of our favorite cocktails: bubbly, minty, and elegantly simple. When you add pineapple to the mix, it’s a delicious symphony!
The sweet tartness of the fruit wonderfully complements the zesty lime and sweet, cooling mint. We fall more in love with this classic cocktail with each new mojito flavor we taste.
To give it a pineapple twist, you only need to add pineapple juice to the standard recipe.
How to Make Pineapple Mojito
Pineapple Mojito Recipe
- 5-6 Fresh Mint Leaves
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp Lime Juice
- ¾ cup Pineapple juice
- ¾ cup Club Soda or Sparkling Water
- 4-5 ice cubes
- 2-3 lime wedges optional
- Muddle the mint, sugar, and lime juice/wedges in a cocktail shaker for about 15 seconds. If using whole lime wedges, squeeze out as much juice as possible. Wait a few minutes to let the sugar dissolve.
- Fill the cocktail shaker halfway with ice, add the pineapple juice, and vigorously mix for 10-15 seconds.
- Pour into an ice-filled highball glass, then top with club soda. Garnish with a wedge of lime and fresh mint (optional).
- If you don’t have a muddler, a wooden spoon will suffice.
- Grilling the pineapple before adding it to the Mojito brings out the richness of the pineapple and provides a great smokey flavor!
- Serving this during a dinner/cocktail party? Multiply the proportions of each ingredient to make the appropriate amount and refrigerate in a pitcher until ready to serve. Just before serving, add the sparkling wine/club soda.
- When making your drink, chill your cocktail glasses in the freezer to keep them extra chilled while sipping.
If you are a fan of mojitos, it is an excellent choice for the summer season. It is very delectable, and it doesn’t matter if you’re sitting on the porch in the evening or reclining by the pool during the day. The most excellent part about making this cocktail is that it just takes five minutes to assemble.
Is it possible to make a pineapple mojito without mint?
Yes! While mint is traditional, you can replace any herb if you wish. Basil, thyme, rosemary, and tarragon are a few alternatives. A combination of herbs would also work.
