Is there a more summery cocktail than this pineapple mojito? We think not. Muddle our pineapple, cucumber, mint and chilli-infused rum with mint and lime, then add soda water.

Ingredients

  • ½ lime, cut into wedges
  • 2 tsp demerara sugar
  • 3 mint sprigs, leaves picked, plus an extra sprig to garnish
  • 50ml pineapple, mint and jalapeño rum  – or see step 2
  • Crushed ice
  • Soda water, to top up
  • 1 slice pineapple, to garnish

Method

  1. Squeeze the juice from the lime wedges into a tall glass with the sugar, then drop in the squeezed wedges and the mint leaves. Muddle well to get the sugar dissolving.
  2. Add the pineapple, mint and jalapeño rum (if you haven’t infused your own, used spiced rum with a dash of pineapple juice and muddle in 1-2 slices of chilli). Half-fill the glass with crushed ice, then stir well. Top up with a little more ice, garnish with a mint sprig and a wedge of pineapple (plus the leaves from the pineapple too, if you like).
