Mojitos are one of my very favorite cocktails, and I could do endless twists on them. The simple addition of pineapple juice in this mojito makes for a fantastic addition. You will love this refreshing and simple cocktail. It is great on a hot summer day, and in the winter it will feel like a quick little escape.

Pineapple Mojito Ingredients

The classic mojito recipe is a muddling of mint leaves, lime juice, and simple syrup. You then top it with rum and club soda. It is a delicious and refreshing cocktail that I have spent many an hour getting to know better. Be sure to scroll to the recipe card for the full list of ingredients and their measurements.

  • Mint leaves: Fresh mint leaves are key for a mojito. By muddling them, their oils are released which add flavor and aroma to the cocktail.
  • Lime juice: Freshly squeezed lime juice is always best for cocktails.
  • Pineapple juice: Adds the pineapple flavor.
  • Simple syrup: Gives the drink just enough sweetness to balance the tartness of the other ingredients and blends into the cold liquid of the drink better than granulated sugar.
  • Light rum: My favorite unflavored white rum to use in cocktails is Bacardi. To make this cocktail like a combination of a Piña Colada and a mojito, use coconut rum like Malibu.
  • Club soda: Adds the bubbles to the cocktail. Be sure to use fresh club soda so it is nice and fizzy. I like to keep small bottles in my pantry so I always have fresh soda for cocktails.

How to Make a Mojito with Pineapple

This recipe could also be called a piña colada mojito because like the piña colada we are using the flavors of pineapple, coconut, and rum to make a refreshing and delicious drink. For the full recipe including all measurements, scroll to the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

  1. Muddle the mint leaves, simple syrup, lime juice and pineapple juice. If you don’t have a cocktail muddler, use the bottom of an ice cream scoop or the handle of a wooden spoon. Just gently rub the mint leaves into the other ingredients. They will release their oils adding the best taste to this drink.
  2. Add in the coconut rum. Fill the glass the rest of the way up with ice.
  3. Top with club soda. If you want to kick the coconut flavor up a notch you can use coconut sparkling water like I did in my Pina Colada Vodka Soda. Garnish with some extra mint leaves, a pineapple wedge, and enjoy!

Homemade Simple Syrup

I have my own recipe for how to make simple syrup. It is just as the name implies: simple. Since you just need sugar and water, I think it is totally worth making at home and keeping a batch in the refrigerator. If you don’t, just pick some up at the store when you buy your rum and mint leaves! They sell it with the alcohol.

Simple Syrup

This simple syrup recipe is perfect for all of your cocktails! It comes together quickly and adds the perfect amount of sweetness.
