Avocado Mint Mojito



  • Handful of fresh mint leaves (about 40 leaves or more), rinsed
  • 3 limes, rinsed
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) white sugar
  • 2 ripe, avocados, peeled, stoned and diced
  • 50 ml (2 tots) rum, optional
  • 500 ml (2 cups) crushed ice or ice cubes
  • 1 litre (4 cups) soda water, chilled


  1. Reserve 4 sprigs of mint for garnish. Tear the remaining mint leaves up and place in a large shaker or large mason jar with lid.
  2. Cut one lime in quarters and place one quarter in each glass as a garnish.
  3. Cut the remaining 2 limes into quarters and place in the shaker with mint leaves and add the sugar. Crush with a muddler or a wooden spoon to release the mint flavour.
  4. Add the diced avocado, and rum if using, and mash well. Add the crushed ice and close the lid of the shaker. Shake well until the avocado is mixed with the rest of the ingredients. Pour in half of the soda water and stir gently to combine – take care as the soda will fizz.
  5. Fill four glasses with more ice, strain the avocado mojito into the glasses, top up with more soda. Garnish with a mint sprig and serve.
