Another Friday, another cocktail recipe! And you guys, I truly couldn’t love this one more. And what better time to release it than on the long holiday weekend?!

This drink would be perfect alongside a big juicy grilled cheeseburger or a perfectly charred chili hot dog and most definitely perfect to watch while big fireworks are lighting up the sky! 

Why This Drink is the BEST: 

If you’re a pineapple fan, this drink is definitely for you! We used FRESH pineapple in this recipe, nothing against canned pineapple juice but there is just something about extra juicy and fresh fruit! 

The ultra sweetness of the pineapple paired with the bite of that mint is the absolute perfect combination. We use a muddler to really make sure that the flavors come out in the drink. YUM. 

Another fun thing is that my friend actually gave me some of her homegrown PINEAPPLE mint leaves! How fun?! They really added a wonderful flavor to the drink overall. 

You could really just stop there and make a normal mojito and top it with club soda but why not make it more interesting, right?!

One of my absolute favorite cocktail mixers is ginger beer. For me, the spicier the better! So it was a no-brainer to substitute the club soda that would normally go into a mojito with ginger beer! 

The sweetness of the pineapple paired with that fizzy spiciness of ginger beer….just WOW y’all. WOW. Perfect combination, ten outta ten, chef’s kiss goodness! 

It’s fizzy, sweet, spicy with a kick and the perfect Summer drink. So let’s get into exactly what you need to make it! 

Ingredients You Need: 

  • White rum 
  • Simple syrup 
  • Fresh mint 
  • Fresh pineapple 
  • Lime 
  • Ginger beer

Best Mojito Making Tips: 

Start by dicing up some pineapple – you’re only going to need about ¼ cup per drink for this. Dice in small bite size pieces – like this!
