Club Soda or Sparkling Water In Mojitos?

The recipe for this lemon mojito calls for soda water. So, you can choose to use either seltzer water or club soda.

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 simple lemon mojito, I suggest using club soda. It’s mild, with almost no taste. It just adds some refreshing bubbles to the drink!

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 the lime reminds people of the sand and sunshine.

There are a bunch of different variations on a classic mojito – including making it with lemons instead of limes, and leaving out the alcohol.

You will love how the lemons brighten up the soda water and the round out the sweetness from the sugar.
