Orange Mojito is an easy, delicious, and refreshing drink recipe to cut down summer heat and makes you feel refreshing. It is made with oranges, fresh mint, lemon juice, soda, and Bacardi Rum.
I know during this COVID epidemic everyone is missing summer fun, beach party, friends get-together, and weekend masti. It’s better to be safe at home, but this doesn’t mean that we can not enjoy food and drinks. Today, I’d like to share one of our favorite recipes, fruity rum drink. It is super easy to make and can be done one at a time or in a large batch. This drink features Bacardi Superior, which is absolutely perfect for summer.
Last weekend when I made Lychee Nojito, my husband said why not make something out of Rum. I quickly opened the fridge and saw couple of oranges lying on the top self. I quickly thought of making this alcoholic drink to please my husband and enjoy the evening together.

How to make Orange Mojito:
Step1: Peel and remove the seeds from orange if any. Place few pieces of orange, 3–5 mint leaves, sugar(or honey), lemon juice in each glass then using a muddler or a wooden spoon, squish them all together so that the orange and the mint leaves releases their flavors.
Step2: Alternatively, you may add them in blending jar along with ice-cubes and pulse it for 1-2 times. You can also use the shaker to crush them a bit.
Step3: Fill each glass with some orange slices, mint leaves, and ice-cubes. Pour crushed mixture then add club soda and orange juice. (If you don’t have orange juice at home then simply blend some orange slices and use it in this drink.). Lastly, add rum into the mixture, I have added mango flavor Bacardi Rum. You can choose any flavor of your choice. Stir gently so the soda doesn’t fizz.
Step4: Serve, and enjoy! If you’re feeling fancy, garnish with a wedge of lime and orange and a sprig of mint leaves.
- The muddling step is important. Despite how fragrant mint it, those leaves won’t give up their flavor until you press them.
- If you don’t have orange juice at home then simply blend some slices of orange with teaspoon of water and use it in this drink.
- While using a blender, do not make a puree out of it. Just pulse it 1-2 times to lightly crush the orange and mint. There should be some chunks of orange which tastes great when it comes in the mouth while taking a sip.
