These mango mojitos are soooo darn good. Mango + mint + lime = a magical combination. Plus, this mango mojito recipe makes enough for you AND your friends, and it can be made ahead of time. Trust me, you’ll want to make this over and over all summer long. (But don’t forget to add these watermelon mojitos to your summer agenda too!)

Why You’ll Love This Mango Mojito Recipe

  • I mean: mango! Need I say more? The mango not only adds sweetness and tropical flavour, but a stunningly beautiful colour. Like liquid sunshine! (Be sure to try this vegan mango ice cream too!)
  • Balanced flavour. The mint is pretty subtle, but adds a delicious flavour profile. The lime, of course, balances it all out with a hit of tartness.
  • The best summer cocktail for a crowd. Mango mojitos are a beautiful, tasty, and totally easy cocktail for the summer, and the fact that you can scale it up to make a big batch makes it even better.

Notes on Ingredients

  • Mint – The kind of mint you use matters! You don’t want a peppermint vibe in your mojito; spearmint (which is the type most commonly sold at grocery stores) is best.
  • Mangos – If you can’t find fresh mangoes that look good, opt for frozen. 
  • Seltzer water, club soda, or sparkling water
  • Fresh lime juice – Freshly squeezed is a must. Don’t used bottled!
  • White rum – I’ve used both a Jamaican Appleton White Rum and a Brazilian White Rum.
  • Simple syrup

How Do You Make Simple Syrup?

Make the simple syrup by boiling a cup of sugar with a cup water until the sugar dissolves. Let it cool, then measure what you need for this recipe. You can refrigerate the rest for future cocktails!

How to Make a Mango Mojito

  • Make the mango puree. Blend the mango and mint in a food processor or blender until completely smooth.
  • Add the liquids. Pour in the sparking water and lime juice and blend again to combine.
  • Make it boozy. Pour the mango mixture into a pitcher and stir in the white rum.
  • Adjust. Taste and add simple syrup to achieve your desired level of sweetness.
  • Serve. Pour the mango mojitos over ice.

Tips and Variations

  • Use the best possible mangoes. I like Julie mangoes or other varieties that aren’t stringy. If your mangoes taste meh, so will your mojitos, so this is important!
  • Garnish with gusto. I love serving these with a lime wedge and a sprig of mint on top. If you’re feeling SPICY, rubbing the rim of the glass with cayenne pepper is SO divine too. It’s something we tried in Mexico and absolutely loved.
  • Don’t take a shortcut with the sweetener. Adding granulated sugar just doesn’t work as well as a liquid, which is why most cocktails call for simple syrup. The sugar is already dissolved, so it mixes in perfectly.

How to Store

You can store this mango mojito recipe in the pitcher in the fridge for several days. Note that it won’t be as sparkly after a day, but it will still be delicious even without the fizziness!

5 (from 3 ratings)


  • 20 mint leaves
  • 2 cups cubed mangos
  • 1 1/2 cups seltzer water/club soda/sparkling water*
  • 1/4 cup 56.6g/2 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup 250ml/8 oz. white rum
  • 3/4 cup to 1 cup simple syrup*


  • Add your mango cubes and mint to a food processor or high speed blender until smooth, about 30 seconds to 1 minute in the food processor or in the blender until a smooth puree forms. Add in the seltzer water and lime juice and mix again, for up to 10 seconds to combine.
  • Pour the mango mixture into a large pitcher and add in the white rum. Stir vigorously for about 15-30 seconds to incorporate.
  • Taste and add the appropriate amount of simple syrup based on the sweetness of your mangoes, up to 1 cup simple syrup, and stir again.
  • Pour into an ice filled glass and enjoy!


  • I’ve used both a Jamaican Appleton White Rum and a Brazilian White Rum, so any white rum should be fine!
  • The best kind of mangoes to use are the ones without stringiness. Julie mangoes would be your best bet. If you’re not sure which is a Julie mango, ask your local grocer/vendor and they’ll guide you in the right direction.
  • You can make the simple syrup by boiling 1 cup sugar with 1 cup water until completely liquid, stirring often. Cool it down, then measure it out! This makes a bit more than 1 cup simple syrup, so use as much or as little of it as you want depending on the sweetness of your mangoes.
  • Seltzer water/club soda/sparkling water – you can use any of these but sparkling water is the most natural (and expensive) of them all, then seltzer water, then club soda which has a few additives.
  • HOW TO STORE: You can store this Mojito recipe in the pitcher in the fridge for several days.
  • Feel free to add more or less rum!
