The mojito has become one of the most popular cocktails in the world, in part because of its association with a “good-time” drink that is often consumed on vacations and in tropical locations.

As a result, the tourism sector has certainly helped to popularize it, and its citrus and sweet flavor has certainly helped it become a favorite, as an individual can drink several mojitos and still be ready to have a good time. The combination of mint, lime, sugar, and alcohol has proven to appeal to a worldwide audience. The Independence Day Mojito is considered a great “summer” variation of the cocktail, because of its emphasis on summer-themed fruits.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ ounces of white rum
  • ½ ounce of lime juice
  • ½ ounce of simple syrup
  • Mint leaves (as many as you prefer)
  • 3 watermelon cubes
  • 6 raspberries
  • 1 ½ ounces of club soda
  • Mint sprig

Preparation:

  1. Create watermelon cubes by doing the following: slice watermelon into large slices, then remove the rind, and cut the watermelon into cubes the size of your choice. Place the cubes on a sheet tray, wrap in plastic wrap, then freeze the cubes for several hours or until completely frozen.
  2. Muddle mint leaves, watermelon cubes, and raspberries into cocktail shaker.
  3. Add rum, simple syrup and lime juice.
  4. Shake so that the mint flavor is fully infused into the cocktail.
  5. Strain into highball glass over ice.
  6. Top with club soda and a sprig of mint.

Equipment:

  • Muddle spoon
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Highball glass

Since July 4th, or Independence Day, is often in the dead heat of summer, the Independence Day Mojito makes perfect sense, as it is a refreshing way to enjoy a fruity cocktail that will not dehydrate you or your guests. Many people use up to ten mint leaves, but of course, that is up to you and your guests. Additionally, watermelon cubes are a great way to infuse a drink while keeping it cool. Of course, you can feel free to change the fruits or the amount of fruits according to your preference, but this is how the traditional Independence Day Mojito is served. Enjoy!
