This Mojito Margarita is the perfect combination of two of your favorite cocktails! The perfect balance of mint, lime and tequila.

Looking for the classics? I have the BEST Margarita Recipe ever and a killer Mojito Recipe.

If choosing between a margarita and a mojito has you longing for one of each, this is the recipe for you! This icy cocktail combines minty mojito with tangy-sweet margarita, resulting in a pitcher full of flavor that you’ll be sipping well into the fall! These Easy Skinny Mojitos, Strawberry Mango Margaritas and Pineapple Mojitos are some other favorites.

WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE MOJITO MARGARITAS?

This glorious Mojito Margarita recipe is sweetened ever so slightly with my Simple Syrup. You can use it in a million recipes, like this Mojito Sangria or this Gin Fizz. Whip up a batch, keep it in your refrigerator and use it all the time! You’ll also need:

  • Good tequila (I’m partial to Jose Cuervo Silver)
  • Club soda
  • Lime juice (from the actual lime or from a bottle, either works)
  • Fresh mint leaves (for muddling and more for garnish)
  • Some kosher salt and a lime wedge for garnish

HOW TO MAKE A MOJITO MARGARITA:

Once you combine these two crisp cocktails you’ll never go back! The flavors muddle (no pun intended) together beautifully! Here’s how to make it:

  • Prep your glass by coating the rim with simple syrup or lime juice and dipping it in kosher salt.
  • In a tumbler, combine about five mint leaves, half an ounce of lime juice and an ounce of simple syrup and give it a good mashing. (No muddler? The end of a wooden spoon does the trick nicely too!)
  • Next, add in a couple ounces of tequila, three ounces of club soda and some ice and give it a good stir.
  • Finish off the cocktail by adding a couple more mint leaves and a lime wedge.

Your porch will become the spot to cool off as we head into the last long stretch of summer. Make a pitcher or two and enjoy the ride!
