These gorgeously colorful Fresh Raspberry Mojitos are the perfect way to cool off on a hot day and are a delicious libation for summer. Light and fresh, you will want to make these all summer long.
Enjoying raspberries at their peak of freshness in the summer is a great treat and changes up the classic mojito in such a good way. This cocktail can also be turned into a mocktail easily by omitting the rum.
What is in a Raspberry Mojito?
This Fresh Raspberry Mojitos recipe is extremely refreshing, and the addition of raspberry syrup really amps up the raspberry flavor. This recipe is slightly sweet (as they are meant to be), but if you like it on the sweeter side, you can double the syrup. Sometimes I even like to use lemon-lime soda in place of the club soda for added sweetness, SO GOOD.
What alcohol is best for mojitos? Rum is traditionally used in a mojito as this cocktail originated in Havana, Cuba and white rum is best. You can change it up to vodka if you like, but you won’t want to call it a mojito anymore, but that is okay too!
Simple ingredients will have you making these raspberry mojitos again and again. If you have mint in your yard like I do, this is a great use for it.

How to Make Fresh Raspberry Mojitos?
This is very simple to make and is accomplished in a matter of minutes. Have everything at the ready so you can whip these up quickly and serve.
- Add lime wedges, raspberries, and mint leaves to a glass and muddle until fragrant and everything is broken up. Muddling gives the cocktail a great fresh mint flavor plus it then bursts with raspberries and lime juice too.
Don’t have a muddler; no problem. Just use either end of a wooden spoon. Investing in a muddler is a great idea though, and can be used for so many cocktails and recipes. See the Amazon link above for a great muddler to buy.
Add ice to the glass. Pour in the raspberry syrup and rum. Stir to combine. Top with soda water, club soda, or sparkling water, garnish with more raspberries, mint, and lime, optional.
Want to make your own raspberry simple syrup? We have a strawberry simple syrup here that can easily be changed to raspberry if you like. You can then be making this cocktail all summer long with wonderful fresh raspberries.
Is a Mojito a Girly Drink?
A mojito doesn’t have the manly status of, say, bourbon on the rocks, but I would easily serve this to everyone at a summer party.
I love having a cocktail at the ready to serve company when they come in. I also love a simple solution to a mocktail for those that don’t want to have alcohol or for children too. This is just as good with or without rum on a hot day!
