  • Ernest Hemingway requested Mojitos without sugar. Of course, this suggests that less lime juice be used.
  • It has become common to use a lemon-flavored rum such as Bacardi Limon in place of the white rum, reducing or eliminating the lime juice.
  • The juiced lime may be used as an additional garnish.
  • For a twist on the traditional mojito, add a handful of raspberries during the muddling stage for an extra hit of flavour.

Virgin Version:Replace white rum with ginger ale soda.
