Lemon Ginger Mojito

Servings: 1 mojito
Author: Lisa Longley


  • For Lemon Simple Syrup
  • juice of two lemons
  • zest of two lemons
  • 1 cup sugar
  • water
  • For the Mojito
  • 5 mint leaves
  • one inch of ginger peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 TBSP lemon simple syrup
  • 1 1/2 ounces white rum
  • white soda


  • Make the lemon simple syrup by putting one cup sugar into a small sauce pan. Zest the lemons over the sugar.
  • Juice two lemons into a measuring cup. Top the lemon juice with water so that you have one cup liquid.
  • Combine the liquid and the sugar and bring to a boil over low heat, stirring until well combined.
  • Strain the simple syrup to remove the zest.
  • Cool before using in the drink.
  • To make your mojito, in the bottom of a glass muddle the ginger, mint, and simple syrup (I used the end of an ice cream scoop and it worked beautifully).
  • Add ice to the glass.
  • Pour in the rum and then top with the soda, stir well to combine.
