Recipe: Put a twist on the classic Cuban cocktail with these apple mojitos

This delicious cocktail recipe is perfect for cooling off during warmer weather.

The classic Cuban mojito is traditionally made with rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water and mint.

For a different take on the sweet and citrusy beverage, why not try an apple mojito instead?

This recipe, originally shared by All4Women, with a unique twist could be just the thing to sip on this spring if you’re looking for a refreshing cocktail.


90ml club soda
15ml lime juice
10 mint leaves muddled with ¼ tsp sugar
75ml light rum
75ml apple juice reduction


1. Make juice reduction by simmering 1.5 cups of apple juice in a small saucepan until it has reduced to ½ cup. Set aside to cool.

2. Muddle mint with sugar in the bottom of a double highball glass.

3. Add juice reduction, rum and lime juice. Stir. Add ice.

4. Add club soda and stir gently.

5. Garnish with apple peel or slice, fresh mint and a lime wedge.
