The classic mojito is a drink that can be traced back to a 16th century Cuban recipe, named after the famous sea captain Sir Frances Drake.

This version with Prosecco is ideal for those who a love a fresh, long fizz drink.  Great for summer sipping, but add it to your cocktail list to enjoy all year round.

Prosecco Mojito cocktail in tall glass with paper straw, mint and lime

This recipe makes 1 serving. To create this cocktail, you’ll need:

  • Champagne flute, highball glass or mason jar
  • 60ml white rum
  • 6 mint leaves
  • 30ml lime juice
  • 15ml simple syrup*
  • Crushed ice
  • Prosecco



  • Combine rum, mint leaves, lime juice and simple syrup in the glass
  • Muddle with one scoop of crushed ice
  • Add another scoop of crushed ice
  • Top with Prosecco


*To make simple syrup:

  • Add equal parts sugar and water (e.g one cup sugar, one cup water) to a small saucepan over a low heat for about 10 minutes
  • Gently stir the mixture until it dissolves and forms a slightly runny syrup that’s about half the original volume
  • Once the syrup is ready, let it cool before adding to your cocktail mixture. If you’re making a large batch, strain it into a jar and seal the lid tightly. Pop it in the fridge, it will keep for about a month.


Non-Alcoholic Variation
For a non-alcoholic option, replace the rum with apple juice and top up with ginger ale instead of Prosecco.
