Rebel Move: Put a Berry in It

Strawberry Mojito

Dare to add juicy ripe berries to the tried-and-true mojito formula of mint + lime + rum + fizzy water? Yes, please! Some strawberries are sweeter than others, so give this a taste-test and add sugar only as needed.

Strawberry-Raspberry Mojito

Why stop at one kind of berry when you can add two? This one does, and so should you.

Fresh Raspberry Mojito

Break two rules at once by adding berries and raspberry vodka to the usual mix. This recipe also calls for simple syrup, which — like its name — is very simple to make.

Blackberry Mojito

You might as well toss out the mojito rule book altogether because this variation uses blackberries, lemon-lime soda, and vodka.


Rebel Move: The Year of the Cucumber

Basil-Cucumber Mojito

Cucumbers — they're just so hot right now. And refreshing enough to use in a mojito. DJSayaka went one step further and added basil, because sometimes she's just not feeling the mint.

Rebel Move: Fancy Bubbles

Bubbly Mojito

Club soda is usually the ingredient that adds the refreshing fizz to a mojito,  but this recipe uses champagne or sparkling wine to send tiny bubbles up your nose.
