At any given event or social gathering, when cocktails are on the menu, it's always the famous ones that people call out for - daiquiri, long island ice tea, cosmopolitan, screwdriver, Bloody Mary, pina colada and of course, the age-old mojito. It has been said that Bacardi, who are probably the finest makers of rum, have been able to consistently push boundaries and surprise drinkers worldwide, and are the original makers of the mojito cocktail. They've been reinventing themselves for years now, keeping their target drinkers in mind, gaining not only popularity worldwide but a loyal fan following as well.

As of late, Bacardi has come up with two unique mojito concoctions infused with flavors that are cocktail-esque, where drinkers just have to pour this into a glass on the rocks, or couple it with plain soda / juice to make a drink. One bottle comes in classic mojito style with superior rum, lime and mint, and the other unique flavor of raspberry mojito with raspberries, cool mint and lime. These can be enjoyed straight from the bottle like it were a cocktail packed into it, that is ready to be served and reveled in.

Who said that a mojito's contents couldn't be mixed and matched to make it different? Keeping the two most important components of the original mojito recipe intact, I'll show you how to whip up delicious cocktail preparations by playing around with other flavors to add a different spin to the classic mojito.
Homemade Mojito Recipes
So like promised, I'll first put together the classic cocktail using the original ingredients, before we move on to creative twists using other flavors but still keeping its base contents in mind.
Classic Mojito Recipe
Classic Mojito
What You'll Need
  • Bacardi white rum (1 and a ½ shot glasses)
  • 1 medium-sized lime (grate 2 pinches of the skin into the drink as a finishing garnish towards the end)
  • 2 sprigs of mint
  • 4 crushed ice cubes (use blender for this)
  • ¼ cup of sweetened soda (clear not dark)
  • Cocktail shaker
  • 1 tall glass
Method of Preparation
To your cocktail shaker, first pour in your rum, lime halves, mint leaves and ice. Shake well vigorously, and then pour this into the tall glass awaiting your mix. Then lastly, tip in your soda and plop in a cocktail stirrer to give it a quick whirl before you take a swig of your drink.
Melon Mojito Recipe
Melon Mojito
What You'll Need
  • Bacardi grand melon flavored rum (1 and ½ shot glasses)
  • 4 chunks of watermelon (mashed and liquefied; strain to remove stray bits)
  • 1 sprig of mint
  • 1 medium-sized lime
  • 4 crushed ice cubes
  • Cocktail shaker (every cocktail lover should own one of these)
  • 1 tall glass
Method of Preparation
Using your blender, drop in your watermelon, ice and grand melon rum; blitz these into a frenzy until you can see a nice smooth mix whirling around in your blender. Pour this into the cocktail shaker and add in your mint leaves and lemon slices and give it a good shake. Pour your mix into the tall glass (using a wide strainer) - kickback and enjoy your cooling summer cocktail.

Just remember that you can play around with a mojito's content by including other flavors that rum is available in. You can also experiment using dark rum, to give it a richer feel in taste.
Orange Mojito Recipe
Orange Mojito
What You'll Need
  • Bacardi O flavored rum (1 and ½ shot glasses)
  • 1 pineapple disc
  • 1 teaspoon of grated lime skin
  • 3 crushed ice cubes
  • A sachet of stevia (or its leaves)
  • Cocktail shaker
  • 1 tall glass
Method of Preparation
Throw into a blender the Bacardi O rum, pineapple disc, crushed ice and stevia, giving it a good whirl for about 15 seconds. Then dunk this mix into the cocktail shaker along with the grated lime and give it a fitful shake. Strain into the tall glass and let your senses become one with this summer chiller.
The best mojito has to be the classic, although the others are making waves among those who depend on a good mojito after a hard day's of work. As for me, I couldn't pass up the chance of a good mojito no matter what other cocktails may be crowding the drink menu. There's something nice about sticking to a favorite and knowing there are ways you can change it up if you ever do get tired of the original preparation. To the makers of cocktails!
