Mojitos are a traditional cocktail that are popular with almost everyone.
In fact, it’s one of the greatest cocktails of all time, in our opinion!
Substitute lemon vodka instead of the classic rum and the delicately sweet flavor is simply outstanding.
The first time we sipped on this one, we fell in love! Here’s how to make it.
Easter Mojito Ingredients
The classic mojito is made with white rum, mint, simple syrup and lime plus Club Soda.
Our version stays true to the original definition, with a few tweaks to make it refreshing and perfect for spring.
The ingredients for making an Easter Mojito are simple!
Here’s what you’ll need for this Peeps Cocktail:
- Lemon Rum
- Lime Juice
- Simple syrup infused with rosemary
- Soda Water
- Mint Leaves
Of course, the classic mojito uses plain white rum but in this version we decided to use Bacardi Limon.
We have using this fun version of regular rum in cocktails because it is made with all natural flavours.
More variations: If you don’t have lemon rum, you can use plain white rum and add an extra squirt of lemon juice to your cocktail.
You can also use plain simple syrup instead of the rosemary one.
Equipment Needed To Make A Mojito
The only tool you’ll need to make this cocktail:
If you don’t have a muddler, you can get by with the wrong end of a wooden spoon but a muddler does make things much easier and they are pretty inexpensive.

Muddle the mint, lime and simple sugar in a glass using a muddler
Step 2: Add the Alcohol

Tips For Making The Perfect Mojito
So this Easter mojito recipe is so simple and easy to toss together that you don’t need many tips.
Firstly, I LOVE using fresh lime juice in my mojitos but if you don’t have any on hand you can use bottled lime juice too.
Muddling your mint is the essential step in this cocktail (and any mojito) so don’t rush. Muddling helps release the mint oil from the leaves and gives you the wonderful flavor.
