Cherry Mojito FAQs

Club soda keeps the drink from being too sweet and it keeps the calories low on the drink as well. If you’re watching your carbs, replace the sugar with a sugar alternative like Swerve.

I bought a new, wooden muddler and I like it more than my old one. It muddles without tearing the mint leaves. More importantly, it’s pretty!

To save time, you can skip the simple syrup and mix everything in the muddling process.

How to Make a Simple Syrup for Mojitos

Mix equal parts of sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. We added fresh pitted cherries to the mixture for more cherry flavor.

We also used Moonshine cherries in our drinks. If you haven’t tried these, you should! They’re much stronger than you think they will be, so be careful.

What kind of rum do you use in mojitos?

For this batch of mojitos, we just used white rum. I’ve used dark rum for a stronger rum flavor. You can also use flavored rums. There are even black cherry flavored rums!
