This Mojito Pitcher is a refreshing drink option for parties all year round!
I’m fully committed to providing you with drink options this summer.
I haven’t been drinking much alcohol in the past ten years because I’ve either been pregnant, nursing, or a lightweight (maybe that one still holds true). 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.
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.
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 summery!
This cocktail is simple – limes, mint, and sugar get muddled together. Add rum and club soda and you’re done!
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.
This mojito pitcher can be easily customized! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Muddle 1 cup of your favorite fresh berries in place of 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

- 5 limes quartered
- 30-35 fresh mint leaves

Add the rum and stir to fully dissolve sugar. Chill.
When ready to serve, Add the club soda to the pitcher and pour into tall glasses filled with ice. Garnish with additional fresh mint leaves and lime wedges.
