A Mango Mojito is packed with fresh, vibrant mango and mint, mixed with sugar and rum, then topped up with soda water for a refreshing and fun cocktail.

If you love a classic mojito, you’re going to really love this mango mojito. I’m such a huge fan of mango, especially when it’s perfectly ripe and flavorful. Added to a mojito, it’s just so tasty.

Mango Mojito

We make a lot of mojitos at home, as you can tell from all the recipes we’ve shared here — pineapple mojitos, raspberry mojitos… — because the flavors are just so great. You really can’t go wrong with a fruity mojito.

One of the main things to keep in mind is that there is a fine balance of flavors here, so even one little tweak to the ratios in the recipe will throw it off and the cocktail won’t taste quite right. We’ve spent a lot of time and sipping perfecting this recipe.

For the rum, I use Bacardi silver, which I find to be great in cocktails and it’s not too expensive. If you want to read more about what rums to use in a mojito, we’ve got a whole post on the subject (I wasn’t kidding when I said we drink a lot of mojitos!).

Ingredients in a Mango Mojito

What you’ll need to make this cocktail is:

  • Fresh, ripe mango
  • Lime wedges
  • Mint leaves
  • Sugar
  • Rum
  • Ice
  • Soda Water

Ripe mango is very important for this recipe. I’ve cut open a mango before and been disappointed by the firm, sort of flavorless flesh. If that’s the type of mango you have, it won’t make a very good mojito. You need a soft and sweet fruit for the best results.

If you want to cut the sugar, you can replace regular sugar with a sugar substitute. The one I use is Xylitol because it has a 1:1 sweetness to sugar. If you use something different, I can’t guarantee the right amount of sweetness, because they all vary so much.

How to Make a Mango Mojito

You need a tall glass and a muddler. If you don’t have a muddler, you can use the handle of another utensil that has a thick handle.

I prefer one that’s made in one solid piece so it’s easier to clean, like this one. You don’t want to crush the lime and mint too much when you’re muddling it, or the bitter flavors will come out. Just press enough to release the juice from the lime.

Add the mango, mint leaves, lime wedges, and sugar to the glass. Muddle them together well, pressing down on the lime wedges and stirring to dissolve the sugar slightly.

Next, add the ice and the rum and stir everything together. Then top the glass up with soda water. Give it one final stir. Then you can add more lime leaves and another wedge of lime for garnish.
