Other Recipes to Serve with Virgin Mango Orange Mojitos
- Keep the tropical vibes going with a fruit-filled, drool-worthy appetizer, like Pineapple Mango Salsa! It’s ridiculous how hard it is to stop eating this!
- Hawaiian Grilled Salmon Filets are a perfect light dinner you can make while hanging out by the grill and sipping your delicious mojitos.
Juice: To keep this drink simple, pick up mango juice, orange juice, and lime juice.
Produce: Fresh mint is a must have in this mojito so grab enough for the drink and to garnish. Speaking of garnish, if you love sliced oranges as a garnish then pick up an orange too, like a Cara Cara or Navel.
Seltzer: You will need plain seltzer water to give this drink some fizz and fun.
Sugar: A little granulated sugar is needed to sweeten the mint.
How to Make Virgin Mango Orange Mojito
STEP ONE: To a pitcher, add the mint and gently crush it with a muddler or thick wooden spoon. Add the sugar and continue to crush the mint and sugar together.
STEP TWO: Add the mango juice, orange juice, lime juice, and seltzer water and stir to mix.
STEP THREE: Fill glasses with ice and pour the mojito into the glasses. Garnish with mint leaves and sliced oranges.
Tips for Success
- Don’t add ice to the pitcher to keep this drink full of strong, refreshing fruit flavors. The ice will eventually melt and water down the fun, so add ice to individual glasses instead. Using large cubes that melt a little slower will also help keep drinks from getting too watery as well.
- Muddling the mint in the pitcher helps to release all of the wonderful mint oils from the leaves. Breaking down the leaves allows the mint to mingle and mix better with all of the other ingredients. Again, if you don’t have a muddler, that’s no problem, just use the end of a thick wooden spoon.
- If you like to juice your own fruits for drinks then you totally can! Just make sure you buy enough fruit to cover a couple of pitchers, these drinks are kind of addicting. The measurements are the same whether you use premade or homemade juice.
Can I add alcohol to this drink?
Classic mojitos all contain rum and that is exactly what you can add to yours! Specifically, white rum is traditionally used in mojitos so it would be the rum of choice here as well. Add the mango orange mojito to a cocktail shaker along with 2 ounces of rum. Shake briefly and then pour the drink into an ice-filled glass and garnish.
If you don’t want your mojitos quite as boozy, you could swap out the seltzer water for hard seltzer. Citrus, mango, pineapple, and other tropical flavors would all pair well.
What is a classic mojito?
Mojitos are a refreshing, summertime drink that originally hails from Cuba. Traditionally, mojitos consist of white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and of course, mint. The light fizz, tart lime, and herby mint are so very cooling and this iconic drink can be found worldwide in a variety of flavors.
