How To Make Mojitos With Tequila?

For the uninitiated, the difference between rum and tequila can be confusing. Both are made from the fermented and distilled juice of sugarcane, but rum is typically made with molasses while tequila is made with the agave plant. As a result, rum tends to be sweeter and smoother while tequila is often described as being more robust and flavorful.

But what does that mean for the classic mojito?

Tequila lends itself well to the refreshing flavors of mint and lime, making for a mojito that is both flavorful and crisp. The flavors will be similar to a margarita with lime and tequila but the mint will change up the flavors.

To make a mojito with tequila, simply muddle mint leaves, lime juice, and sugar in the bottom of a glass. Then add ice, tequila, and sparkling water or soda. Give it a good stir, and enjoy!

Tips for making the perfect mojito every time!

The key to making the perfect mojito is all in the details. From muddling the mint leaves to adding just the right amount of lime juice, these tips will help you make a delicious mojito every time.

  1. Start with fresh mint leaves. If your mint leaves are looking a little wilted, they won’t pack the same flavor punch.
  2. Muddle the mint leaves gently. You don’t want to overdo it and turn your mojito into a minty mess.
  3. Add the lime juice slowly. A little bit of lime goes a long way, so start with less and add more to taste.
  4. Use white or light rum for the best flavor.
  5. Add a splash of soda water for a refreshing finish.
  6. Garnish with mint and a slice of lime or whatever fruit-flavored mojito you are enjoying.

Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to making the perfect mojito every time.
