I’m fully committed to providing you with drink options this summer. Today’s cocktail? A mojito pitcher recipe!
I haven’t been drinking much alcohol in the past ten years for various reasons. Now that I’m moving into a new season of life, I’m all about having a cocktail, especially if there’s a gathering involved!
I’ve already shared our go-to gin and tonic recipe, and I have a few other exciting drinks I’m working on in the weeks to come! Today, though, we’re making sure you’re prepared proper for a party.
Pitcher cocktails for a crowd
We had a few people over last weekend, which rarely happens any more. It gave us a good excuse to clean the house (THAT was intense) and make a pitcher of mojitos to pass around.
Why make a pitcher of mojitos?
What’s great about making a pitcher cocktail is that it can serve as the signature house drink, allowing whoever is hosting to tend to food, fun, and conversation. I chose to go big with the mojitos because they’re so refreshing and perfect for summer!
The best mojito pitcher recipe for a crowd
I love that this recipe requires no simple syrup so it’s even faster and easier to make! Between that and how amazing it tastes, I have to say this is the BEST mojito pitcher recipe out there!
- Club soda
How to make a mojito pitcher
- Muddle limes, mint, and sugar together in a large pitcher
- Add rum and club soda
- You’re done!
Top tips and questions
Can I make a mojito jug ahead of time?
If you want to get a head start before the party, mix everything up except the club soda and chill until go time. I don’t like to let open club soda sit around too long ahead of time because it will loose some of its carbonation.
How many limes do I need to make a pitcher of mojitos?
I recommend having a minimum of 5 limes for making the cocktail, and also having a few on hand for garnishing.
What is a muddler?
A muddler (that’s an affiliate link to a great one) is a long handled kitchen utensil that is textured on the bottom to help mash cocktail ingredients. It helps get all the juice and essence out of your limes and mint leaves for maximum flavor.
Tips for customizing
- Muddle 1 cup of your favorite fresh berries with the limes
- Replace half the limes with 1 cup fresh chopped pineapple
- Skip the rum and add more soda water to taste for a mojito mocktail

You’re welcome, enjoy your mojitos!
Hi, I’m making this in a large container. Can you tell me how large is this pitcher? How many cups does the pitcher have?
Lindsay Moe says
I’m actually not sure how many cups the pitcher holds, I’m sorry! The one in the photos is pretty standard size and the recipe fills it about half way.
Can I substitute the club soda for ginger beer and submit the rum for vodka?
Lindsay Moe says
I think that would work great!
