Cucumber Mint Blender Mojitos are my jam.
Like daily. Because if I’m being totally honest, I definitely drank several of these this week-and not just on Friday night. 😉
Just check out the background of this picture for a minute, please…
Want to know what makes that totally dreamy light filter through my windows? SNOW. In March. Somewhere around 4-6 inches. So while you can pretend to shake your head at my semi-crazy sounding drinking habits, I know that deep down, you’re craving something summery and delicious just as much as I have been—even if you’re lucky enough to already be experiencing Spring where you live.
This Cucumber Mint Blender Mojito has been a fairly long time in making it to the blog. Fortunately or unfortunately—depending on your love of mojitos—we had to try somewhere around 10 different versions of this recipe before we felt like it was the right one. They were all delicious, of course…. but this particular version won out.
Reasons to make this Cucumber Mint Blender Mojito NOW:
- It’s EASY. Like, blender easy. No fancy drink shaker skills needed here, my friend. You and I, we’re in the 30-Minute Dinners camp, most night. I don’t have time to make 4 individual mojitos because I don’t have time to muddle mint leaves with sugar in 4 separate glasses. You either, probably. This blender recipe is for us. 👊
- It’s just as good virgin as it is with rum. (Really.) And totally breakfast/brunch worthy.
- It tastes like a green summer dream. Kiddingnotkidding.
Cucumber Mint Blender Mojito
- ½ of a cucumber, cut into 3-4 chunks (to make it easier for your blender)
- juice of 1 lime
- about 15 small mint leaves, or 8 large
- 1-3 T. agave syrup, or to taste (I used 2)
- ¼ c. club soda
- 6-8 ice cubes
- 4 oz. rum (optional)
- More club soda, lime wedges, and mint leaves for serving
- Layer all the ingredients except the ice in a blender and pulse until smooth. Add in the ice cubes and blend to desired consistency. You can add more ice for a more slushy-type mojito, or you can leave them more chunky, as I did.
- Run a lime wedge around the edge of your glasses, then dip the wettened edges in sugar. (You can also dip the inverted classes in a shallow bowl of water, instead of a lime wedge if you prefer).
- Pour the mojitos into 2 glasses, add 2 oz. of rum into each glass (if using) and top off with the remaining club soda. Serve with lime wedges or mint leaves if desired.
