How to make Mojito Recipe, homemade mojito drink and syrup

Easy and Simple Mojito Recipe

Mojito is a popular summer drink with a Spanish origin. The ingredients of this drink consist of sugar syrup, lemon juice, mint leaves, and soda.

When we first tried mojito in one of our family dine-outs long time ago, we fell in love with its refreshing taste. It has been our favorite ever since. So, I searched how it is made. Traditionally, mojito contains rum but I am skipping it because I am not drinking alcohol. I just experimented with the syrup, adding some lemon zest to it to make it more citrusy and fragrant.

So, the next time you buy a soda, try to upgrade it with this recipe. This is also a great idea for parties or when you are having some guests coming to your home.

The first thing you need to do is make your own syrup; prepare equal parts of water and sugar (1 cup water and 1 cup sugar), pour it in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves completely. Turn off heat, let it cool down and transfer in a container.


  • 1-2 Tablespoon syrup
  • 1 Lemon (cut into 8 wedges)
  • 12 Mint Leaves
  • 1 Cup Ice Cubes
  • Soda (Sprite or 7 Up)


  1. In a drinking glass, pour syrup.
  2. Add 4 pieces lemon wedges and then squeeze the remaining wedges.
  3. Crush the mint leaves and add.
  4. Fill the glass with ice cubes.
  5. Pour soda over the ice.
  6. Stir well. Add more syrup if desired.
  7. Garnish with a sliced lemon.
  8. Enjoy!
