Ingredients for apple cider mojitos
- Lemon juice – If possible, try to use freshly squeezed lemon juice. I find that it gives the best natural flavor to the pitcher as a whole.
- Rum – Use a good quality rum! Remember, your drink will only ever be as tasty as the liquor you use.
- Apple cider – Just like the rum, try to use a good quality of apple cider that has real warm spiced apple flavor.
- Club soda – This mixer is part of what makes this drink a mojito.
- Garnishes – With a drink this good, garnishes are a must! Some of my favorites include mint sprigs, apple slices, lemon wedges and star anise.
Can I make a pitcher of this apple cider mojito ahead of time?
You totally can!
Just cover the pitcher with airtight plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge overnight. However, you may want to wait until you’re about to serve it to add the club soda so it doesn’t go flat.
Do I need to add simple syrup?
I’d steer clear of any additional sugary ingredients with this mojito recipe.
The apple cider is pretty sweet already, so you don’t need any other sweeteners at play.
Do you love mojitos? Me too!
