Best Rum For Fruity Mojitos
What type of rum tastes best in a blueberry mango mojito?
There are two types of rum that people use in mojitos – dark and light rum. They both have the same alcohol content, but dark rum is aged longer, so it has a bolder flavor.
Light rum is sweeter and doesn’t taste as much like the oak barrels that are used.
I prefer to use light rum when I make fruity mojitos. The flavors of the fruit and syrups should stand out, not the woodsy taste of the rum. That’s why I used Bacardi light rum.
But there isn’t a wrong answer. If you like your drinks to be stronger or have a bold flavor, then try it with a dark rum.
You can even balance the rum flavors by adding a bit more club soda.
The only way to know which type of rum is best is to try a few different ones and taste them. Then, stick with the one that tastes the best to you.
For this mojito, I suggest using Bacardi Superior Rum. It’s really mild and lets the other flavors stand out.
What Is A Mojito?
A classic mojito is made with just five ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint.
It’s known as an “island drink” because it has such a bold citrus flavor.
There are a bunch of different variations on a classic mojito (and I’ll share my favorites later in this post).

What tools or kitchen gadgets do you need to make a blueberry mango mojito?
Here is what I suggest having in your kitchen before you begin:
You’ll use the blender to puree the blueberries and mix them with the simple syrup, mint, and mango syrup.
If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, a mason jar with a lid will also work. Just as long as you have something that is spill-proof that you can use to shake it all up.

Club Soda or Sparkling Water
This is a very citrusy cocktail, so is it better to use club soda or sparkling water? What about tonic water?
Tonic water has a bitter taste, so I prefer to stay away from it when I’m making something that is supposed to taste sweet.
For a blueberry mango mojito, I suggest using club soda. It’s mild, with almost no taste. It just adds some refreshing bubbles to the drink!
Here’s the complete recipe – I hope you enjoy it!
